Whatever the neo-cons want...the end of the sequester
Posted by Staff

Being in the political minority usually means you are relegated to blocking and tackling. And even that defensive role was diminished when Harry Reid went nuclear and curtailed the filibuster. Even without that rule change, there are few opportunities for the GOP, with majority control of only one house of Congress, to trim federal spending. So the sequester cuts (across the board) that went into effect this year were, therefore, welcome good news. We need to take our victories, no matter how small, where we can find them. Nevertheless from the outset our neoconservative friends have complained about the cuts disproportionately affecting the Pentagon. (Perhaps they should have thought about this before we spent $1 trillion plus on two wars in past 11 years.) Read Andrew Stiles' take on the GOP's "schizophrenia" on the sequester.
