Here we to with the next MANUFACTURED CRISIS. It’s called the SEQUESTER. Which would never have been necessary had Boehner and Co. hadn’t attempted to HOLD AMERICA HOSTAGE over the DEBT CEILING DEBACLE.
Where did it come from? Budget Control Act of 2011
The Budget Control Act of 2011 (Pub.L. 112–25, S. 365, 125 Stat. 240, enacted August 2, 2011) is a federal statute in the United States that was signed into law by President Barack Obama on August 2, 2011. The Act brought conclusion to the 2011 United States debt-ceiling crisis, which had threatened to lead the United States into sovereign default on or about August 3, 2011.
The law involves the introduction of several complex mechanisms, such as creation of the Congressional Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction (sometimes called the “super committee”), options for a balanced budget amendment and automatic budget sequestration.
So you see, CONGRESS voted on the SEQUESTRATION, and President Obama signed the bill into law.
2011 CBS interview with Scott Pelley. As you can hear, Boehner was quite happy with the SEQUESTER DEAL.
Pelley: You were unable to get your own caucus behind your bill a few days ago. Do you intend to remain Speaker of the House?
Boehner: I do. When you look at this final agreement that we came to with the white House, I got 98 percent of what I wanted. I’m pretty happy.
