Well, two comments. The first is that I agree with John Boehner: it sucks, but the alternative of tax hikes sucks more, so we’ll have to do it if the Democrats refuse to cut spending. Full disclosure: this means that I am explicitly supporting a policy that, if implemented, will directly and immediately lower my household’s income*. Which, again, sucks, but the alternative is worse. I have kids.
Second comment: if the sequester is implemented – and to be implemented all John Boehner has to do is absolutely nothing – then the withdrawal symptoms that politicians (particularly Democratic ones) will exhibit afterwards will be EPIC. They’re already starting to look like junkies trying to score a fix, frankly.

*Yeah, I’m trying to figure out how to ameliorate that problem myself. Dammit, it’s not like recovering from a recession is actually hard; plenty of Democrats have managed the trick.
