President Obama is due to meet Republican Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham today, ostensibly to talk about immigration reform, although you'd expect the looming $85B in spending cuts to crop up in conversation. There's otherwise little indication that Democrats and Republicans are in negotiations to cancel/postpone the sequestration.

    Why the hysteria over these fake and trivial "cuts" that amount to only 2% of Federal spending?
    This is political theater and a manufactured crisis that no thinking and informed citizen believes is anything other than crass emotional manipulation by the Regime.

    Sequestration, much ado about nothing.

    They'll probably spend most of the meeting talking about golf.

    Why is Obama meeting with McCain and Graham. Shouldn't he be crossing the aisle?

    I do enjoy these comment threads on SA. GOP continues to "dis" GOP centrists and blame the Prez for going over "sequestration cliff." How else are we going to get cuts in defense? ...please, please, don't throw me in that briar patch. The Prez must be great at chess.
