The only reason the sequester happened was because Obama finally refused to sign off on extending rich guy tax cuts at every turn.....?

...which Republicans demanded to sign every bill that was passed until then.

That raised revenues.

That lowered spending since it forced automatic spending cuts.

Obama made the decision, not Republicans.

Will conservatives ever admit that in their fake narrative of events since 2009?

    No. This has actually been well documented by Bob Woodward.

    The reason the sequester happened is because after a tentative deal was reached between Obama and Boehner that would include $800 Billion in "revenue enhancements," Obama moved the goal posts and demanded $400 Billion more in tax hikes.

    ....So....spending didn't go down because of Republicans.
