Bob Woodward: Obama lied about the sequester

He seems to be able to lie with impunity and get a pass. He is slicker than Slick Willie

President Barack Obama and former White House Chief of Staff Jack Lew repeatedly lied by last year by claiming congressional Republicans were responsible for the looming $85 billion cut in the federal budget through sequestration, according to The Washington Post editor Bob Woodward.

Based on interviews with two senior White House aides who were directly involved in budget planning, Obama personally approved Lew’s plan to propose the mandatory trigger to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid in July 2011.

A majority of Republicans ultimately voted for the Budget Control Act, which included the sequester.

Obama wanted this so he could play politics and further blame Republicans
