    Blaming the sequester on Obama alone makes as much sense as blaming the hurricane on gay people.

    Obama’s Paycheck Exempted from ‘Sequester’
    February 25, 2013 – President Barack Obama won’t have to worry about his paycheck if the spending sequestration included in the Budget Control Act that he signed into law in 2011 begins taking effect this Friday.

    The tea party doesn't think there should be a FEMA, why aren't they cheering this?

    Why not? It makes for smaller government, puts more responsibility and decision making on the states (states rights) and it helps cut the budget.
