Mr. WEBER of Texas. Mr. Speaker, it doesn't seem like good leadership practice for the President to be going around the country reminding Americans that he failed to prevent his own sequestration, but to each his own.

Unfortunately, the President's sequestration is affecting us all. Why should he have shackled us all with the sequestration?

The truth is, the President's inability to lead has shackled us. The truth is, the President has not only a spending problem but a denial problem.

Well, make no mistake, Mr. Speaker. Sequestration is here. I implore the President to come back, work with Congress, and quit campaigning in the media.
