Enough with the Republican deniers

Success - Article sent! close

Evidently the Republican deniers have decided that the president and the Democrats in Congress are entirely responsible for the sequester. To come to this conclusion they have to ignore the fact that 174 Republican members of the House of Representatives and 27 Republican senators voted for the bill that set in motion the sequester. Every one of the GOP leaders voted for the bill. Were the Democrats complicit? Yes. Did the president sign the bill into law? Yes. Are the Republicans innocent? Give me a break!

I know that Republicans have little respect for facts, but there should a limit to to the denial.
