Obama is willing to put Americans in harms way to accomplish his agenda. He has used the word "pain" to describe what Americans are going to feel as a result of his unwillingness to compromise with cutting spending. Obama hasn't provided a budget since being elected 5 years ago. Obama has no plan to put a budget on the table. Obama has been lying to Americans about the devastation of sequestration. Obama promised to cut the deficit in half 5 years ago. Instead he had doubled it. He hasn't cut one item of spending. Tax revenues have increased nearly $1 trillion dollars while spending has doubled. If Obama had cut spending as he promised, he actually would have paid off the deficit with the additional tax revenue.
This is what happens when a person is elected President based on the color of his skin instead of his qualifications. Plus you have 47% of Americans on entitlements who voted to keep Obama because he promised to increase their entitlements.
This is the equivalent to the people who boarded the lifeboats on the Titanic and watched while the ship sank. Obama is the captain of the Titanic.
