"I received word from a source who works with the “other side” on the Hill that a handful of Senators was preparing a sequester compromise to be worked up and presented to Reid’s office by today. Word of that compromise got out and reached the White House. I am guessing it was someone working for Reid who relayed that information. Regardless, it was the very next day that a staffer for one of the Senators working the compromise deal received word from Legislative Affairs to not under any circumstances continue to produce a compromise, or publicize any such deal."
Now we KNOW that Obama is trying to use the Sequester to "Punish" Republicans. He doesn't care about anything else, just that he has to beat down on the Republicans and destroy any integrity they have.
