This is just part of what Republicans embrace:  "And nearly 150,000 civilian Defense Department in the [Virginia, Maryland and Washington, DC] area alone would be partially furloughed through Sept. 30 — with a total average reduction in pay of $7,500.  (Defense Department officials previously explained that the furloughs would probably come in the form of workers being asked to take one day off per week, amounting to a 20 percent cut in pay.)"

All I hear from the Republican camp is how this sequester mess is Obama's fault.  Even with videos that show the story, these Republicans deny the truth and lie.  Obama wasn't the one who wanted this.  Unfortunately Obama compromises too much (in my opinion) and Republicans too little, and things like this happen.
