Wait a second....Congress' plan to cut military and domestic budgets? Who the f*ck came up with the idea of the sequester, anyway?
Oh, yeah. Even the Washington Post won't swallow this steaming load of bullsh*t, which Obama has been telling since late in his re-election campaign:
Obama’s fanciful claim that Congress ‘proposed’ the sequester
The White House proposed the idea of a compulsory trigger, with Sperling calling it an “automatic sequester,” though initially it was to include tax revenue, not just spending cuts. Boehner was “nervous” about using it as a budget tool....
Once tax increases were off the table, the White House staff came up with a sequestration plan that only had spending cuts and sold Harry Reid on the idea....Republicans agreed to the White House proposal for a sequester.
How does the Washington Post, no bastion of conservatism, rate Obama's claim the the sequester was Congress' idea?
We had been wavering between Three and Four Pinocchios. But in light’s of Lew’s decision to doubledown on Obama’s claim, we agree it’s a whopper.
And yet, there is Yahoo, reporting Obama's lies as fact.
Not a news service - a propaganda outlet.
Today, the same as yesterday....
