    Then the sequester rule will kick in...unless Congress changes the sequester rule. So what will happen of the sequester rule kicks in? Go to the link and page down to graph.

    Why the Super Committees failure will be a good thing, at link above. In part below:

    "...The panel was "doomed to fail" from the start "because the gulf between our two major political parties is so wide." Cutting the deficit in any real way is "about fundamental values," not accounting, and Republicans and Democrats "have sharply different views of what constitutes economic justice." In the end, it's up to voters to give one party the majority it needs to implement its agenda..."

    My dear 410-the only party deserving of such power does not exist in the US congress today or tomorrow.
    With almost 50% of voters on some form of welfare the vote will go to "give me the money".
    The super committee should have their meetings on C-span but wont, none of them wants the truth shown. They will all be reelected and more taxes as more people with land,business will sell and leave the shores of wonnalayahore for a decent place for their children or themselves. Lee- who still remembers when the first federal inspector came to one of his stores to shake him down in NYC.

    If?...did you say "IF"?.

    Its already a done deal, the only thing these bozos are doing effectively is developing the spin that blames someone else.

    Wish my job paid me as well for no output or results.

    I live in Maryland in the DC area...I wish all of you would take back your veneal politicians that you sent here...of either party...we seem to have an infestation as bad as bed bugs in a NYC hotel.

    In my view they are all self-serving vermin.

    Rand Paul: Automatic cuts may be the only way
    Posted by
    CNN's Kevin Liptak

    In part below:

    '(CNN) - Rand Paul, the Kentucky senator who was elected with strong support from the tea party, said Sunday the automatic cuts that would follow a super committee failure may be the only way for Congress to reach a debt-cutting deal.

    “Automatic cuts (sequestration) are sort of like telling your children that, you know, if you don't clean up your mess, or else,” Paul said on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

    “Maybe we need the ‘or else’ because Congress isn't behaving the way they should be behaving. Maybe sequestration is our only way we will get any kind of cuts,” Paul said.

    Paul said the major cuts to budget of the Department of Defense wouldn’t actually amount to spending cuts, only cuts in proposed expenditures.

    “I think we need to be honest about it,” Paul said. “The interesting thing is there will be no cuts in military spending. This may surprise some people, but there will be no cuts in military spending because we're only cutting proposed increases. If we do nothing, military spending goes up 23% over 10 years. If we sequester the money, it will still go up 16%. So spending is still rising under any of these plans. In fact, if you look at both alternatives, spending is still going up. We're only cutting proposed increases in spending...'

    He doesn't know how. He can only parrot what his liberal masters have brainwashed him with. And asking him to think is like trying to teach a pig to sing. It won't work and it annoys the pig.

    Congress Has Over a Year to Thwart Spending Cuts

    It begins -

    "Don't look for the Pentagon to shut down one side of its famous five-sided building. Don't expect the Education Department to pull back its grants just yet.

    With the collapse of the deficit-cutting super committee, Congress' emergency backup budget-cutting plan now is supposed to take over — automatic, across-the-board spending reductions of roughly $1 trillion from military as well as domestic government programs.

    But the big federal deficit reductions that are to be triggered by Monday's super-committee collapse wouldn't kick in until January 2013. And that allows plenty of time for lawmakers to try to rework the cuts or hope that a new post-election cast of characters — possibly a different president — will reverse them..."

    The sad thing is this is ONLY a cut of FUTURE SPENDING INCREASES. It does NOTHING to cut the already out of control spending.

    It's like trying to use buckets to bail out the Titanic.

    Brian, correct. Use of the word "cut" is just to keep the suckers happy.

    If they said "reduction of the increase" someone might catch on to the REAL agenda.

    And it doesn't start till 2013. We need leaders who are serious about financial reform.

    Fat chance.

    Ron Paul appears to be the only one who has actually put forth a plan to cut current spending, not the cutting the increase smoke and mirrors crap. Alas, I doubt he'll get elected. Too many people want anti-gun liberal Romney.
