Its funny how you guys set this up. You set tax cuts to expire. Then when/if you raise taxes you say you're just letting tax cuts "expire" so if you let any of them remain you're doing some big favor for somebody.
So let's turn that around. Sequester isn't really a spending cut. Its just allowing some of the spending increases since 2008 expire.
You're lucky they didn't cut them all.
At the root of this mentality is that all things first belong to government. What they allow you to keep is apparently up to their discretion.
