As reported here, House Speaker John Boehner wrote in the Wall Street Journal that the deep automatic spending cuts set for the end of the month were President Obama’s idea. Boehner’s assertion has been debunked. As the painful cuts come closer to becoming a reality, the blame game is playing out in force. In the following video — in Paul Ryan’s own words — the blame should rightfully be placed squarely on Republican shoulders.
“Paul Ryan has been a fan of sequestration for his entire career in the House. He has repeatedly called for discretionary spending caps backed by a sequester. On August 1, 2011, he got what he has always wanted. Now that the sequestration might actually take place he says it’s “not good government.”
Paul Ryan, you are what you hate. The majority of Americans also blame Republicans for the sequester.
