"I got 98% of what I wanted."

Those are the words spoken by Representative John Boehner (R-OHmytheygrowthemstupidinOhio), the Speaker of the House, back in 2011 after the Budget Control Act was signed into law.  The law provided for the Dreaded Sequester, which will do all sorts of scary shit to the economy.

Basically, it's an automatic austerity package.  You know, the kind that forced the United Kingdom into a double-dip recession and has turned the economy of Greece into a basket case so bad that a neo-Nazi party has actually managed to get into Parliament.

The Budget Control Act was like wiring a stick of dynamite to your gas tank, designed to explode if you didn't take your foot off the brake pedal.  Kind of hard to progress down the road like that, you know?

Boehner's now trying to hang the looming sequestration on President Obama who, by Boehner's own math, is only responsible for two percent of the BCA and the blame therefor.

Blame where it's due, John, you stupid Oompah-Loompah.  You owned 98% of this flaming sack of dog feces back in 2011, you can own 98% of it now.
