"Conjuring up the specter of fired teachers, furloughed FBI agents, idled Border Patrol agents, sidelined firefighters, criminals freed by cutbacks and "hundreds of thousands" of lost jobs, President Barack Obama pressed congressional Republicans on Tuesday to agree to increase tax revenues as part of a plan to avert "brutal" across-the-board spending cuts set to take effect one week from Friday."
And he keeps hammering at them constantly. The GOP needs to hold a press conference to lay out the facts and say "Mr. President if you didn't want this to happen, then why did you suggest it?"
And then keep hammering back at him about "HIS" idea. Not lay down and take his garbage.
