It's interesting that Mr. Obama blames this, forced, 2% Spending Adjustment on the House Republicans. He and his team have, finally, admitted the idea of this forced cut back is a result of the White House Team and not from the House or Senate Republicans. So, as former President Trumen said, “The buck stops here,” and since Mr. Obama recently quoted in answering a reporter that was asking, “Who is responsible,” in another matter, doesn't this “buck” also fall dead on Obama's desk? Now, I agree that the Republican controlled House and the Democratic controlled Senate are not without blame because they had to write and pass the Bill along to the White House but tell, “Did the man seated in the Oval Office, Barak Obama, not sign it into Law? Of course he did and he, alone, had the final authority here because had he sent it back, vetoedç that would have been the end of the matter.
