He's the one who put the sequester in place and back then actually threatened to veto any changes to it.

“Already some in Congress are trying to undo these automatic spending cuts. My message to them is simple: No,” Mr. Obama said from the White House briefing room Monday evening. “I will veto any effort to get rid of those automatic spending cuts to domestic and defense spending.”

Actually, that's a lie.

Both Republicans AND Democrats voted for the sequester. It would not have been made law otherwise.

Not. Do you ever do any research on a subject before you post something that isn't true?

The Republicans are partial owners of this idea, and as the party that now wants the cuts to kick in, they deserve to—and will—bear more responsibility for the negative impacts.

True.

And the OP misses the whole point of the sequester. It was put on place because it became obvious the Congress was doing absolutely nothing to reduce spending on its own initiative. Now it looks like they are refusing to do nothing even with the sequester, so the white house is urging them to come up with cuts so we can avoid the sequester.
