President Barack Obama says he will veto any effort to get rid of automatic spending cuts that would take effect in 2013 if Congress can't find other ways of trimming government deficits. [...]
Obama issued his threat Monday an hour after leaders of Congress' deficit-reduction super committee announced that they had failed to reach agreement on cutting the debt. The inability of the committee to meet its deadline means the government is facing about $1.2 trillion in automatic cuts in January 2013.
Obama said the threat of those reductions should remain in place to maintain pressure on Congress find a compromise.
I fucking dare ya dude.
Give me a REAL Christmas.
