What not to vote for

From the White House website: What is the Sequester: Back in 2011 Congress passed a law saying that if both parties could not agree on a plan to reach that $4 trillion goal, about a trillion dollars of additional, arbitrary budget cuts would start to take effect this year? And by the way, the whole design of these arbitrary cuts was to make them so unattractive and unappealing that Democrats and Republicans would actually get together and find a good compromise of sensible cuts as well as closing tax loopholes and so forth. This was all designed to say we cannot do these bad cuts; let us do something smarter. That was the whole point of this so-called sequestration."
