Top Bay State Democrats continued to try and pin the sequestration chaos

Top Bay State Democrats continued to try and pin the sequestration chaos in D.C. on congressional Republicans yesterday, with Gov. Deval Patrick again accusing the GOP of trying to ruin the economy and saying he’s “scared,” while U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren joined straight into slam “just plain dumb” budget cuts.

Patrick framed sequestration being a “partisan failure,” blaming GOP House Speaker John Boehner for refusing to strike an agreement with President barack obama.

“When the Republicans in the home say, ‘This is what we’re happy to do,’ and the president says, ‘OK, I believe that’s a good idea,’ it is said, ‘Well do you know what? Don't worry then.’ I think that’s as frustrating towards the American public since it is if you ask me,” Patrick said in a State House press conference yesterday.

Patrick Administration & Finance Secretary Glen Shor admitted there would be no immediate action on the state level if the sequestration blade falls on March 1, but Patrick warned it could lead to a slowdown in the economy and also to crippling uncertainty in the private sector.

“I’m scared,” said Patrick. “I’m concerned.”

Meanwhile, Warren referred to as the automatic cuts in federal spending slated to adopt effect Friday “just plain dumb,” but the Bay State’s recently elected senior senator said it’s largely around congressional leaders to achieve an agreement.

“We’re available trying to make clear this implies children kicked from Jump start programs. This implies teachers which are potentially fired. Therefore fewer air traffic controllers,” she said. “It means here in Massachusetts fewer dollars starting research.”
New England Council president Jim Brett said Warren highlighted some issues that are crucial that you the council, including infrastructure and the cuts in research and defense spending which can be supposed to take effect if Congress along with the president are not able to cut an offer by Friday.

“She hit all the key notes,” Brett said. “She described she thought about being a protector of the programs.”

Boehner said yesterday he isn’t gonna move off his long-held position the sequester be offset through targeted spending cuts, not the package of cuts and tax increases Obama supports.

“Mr. President, you got your tax increase,” Boehner said, talking about the tax rate increases that took effect on Jan. 1. “It’s time and energy to cut spending throughout Washington.”

Meanwhile, Patrick took criticism he got from GOP operative Karl Rove as being a compliment, when Rove accused Patrick of committing “wild libel” against congressional Republicans on “Meet the Press” Sunday.

“Thank you greatly,” Patrick said when motivated to respond to the Rove jibe.
