Jay Carney: Yes, the Sequester Idea Was Put Forward by the President’s Team

Oh oh …Bloggers winning? Surely the lamestream did not do this on their own?

It is well known that the sequester was the Obama Administration’s idea promoted during the July 2011 debt-ceiling negotiations. The sequester includes $1.2 trillion in mandatory cuts – half from the military, half from domestic programs.

Tonight, fter beating around the bush a while, White House spokesman Jay Carneyadmitted to Bret Baier on Special Report that the sequester was the administration’s idea.

Spokes-kid trapped there was no way out:

Here’s the transcript:

Bret Baier: Fair to say, but it was the president’s idea… You concede that point, right?

Jay Carney: What I will concede is that we were looking and the Republicans were looking for a trigger around which to build the mechanism to get us out of default possibility and the sequester was one of the ideas yes put forward, yes, by the president’s team.
