And the Senate democrats version of the bill would've ADDED $7.2 Trillion to the deficit in 10 years per the CBO.

Good grief. Teeray...you need to have a sit down with Reid.

It is 7.2 billion, not trillion

That is interesting however, because I think that is a technicality due to PAYGO which means changes to the budget have to be offset. But I don't know if they can work around it without repealing PAYGO, which I assure you Democrats don't want to do because it fugs Republicans in the butt.

Also it had the cuts phased in over 10 years.

I didn't like it to begin with and am glad it failed.

Billion...correct.

Obama threw out PAYGO a month after signing it.

When this is the level of intellect driving the discussion, we've already lost

The world did not end today? Stock market went up? What the heck?

You'd think with the massive layoffs around the country and no police, first responders, FBI, border patrol, TSA, etc guys on the job, there would be massive chaos. Schools upside down without all the teachers that were laid off today, not to mention the child care mess. And the stock market goes up?

Bush is to blame for something here, just can't put my finger on it yet

Good thing they are still smarter than the avg republican voters

Way to assume.... yet again.

Also, good job on not commenting on the substance of what is presented

Attempt to divert attention from facts at hand: check

No he didn't. They did make some stuff exempt from PAYGO like social security, so that every time social security increases spending because of cost of living or something, they don't have to take funding away from something else or raise taxes.

The Obama administration announced Tuesday that it will cancel all tours starting this weekend, due to sequester cuts.

That makes sense. Gotta make the tough decisions.
