americanews headquarters starts right now. we begin with the sequestration showdown. the president signed sequester in law and laying the blame at the feet of the republicans in congress. fox news correspondant mark emmanuel has more. >> hi, uma, after the robbery republicans said they would not increase tax revenue. president obama signed an order putting it in affect. today the president blasted the gompt >> it is it happening because republicans in congress chose this outcome over closing a wasteful tax loop hole. they decide to protect? interest tax breaks for the well off and well connected is more important than military and middle class. >> speaker boehner and nancy
peel peel've -pelosi and there would be no last minute back room dealings. no one likes the reductions done, republicans accept happened them as a way to reduce sphending. a rising star blame happened president obama and allies in the senate for failing to act. >> we urge president obama and the stiant democrats to put country ahead of party and pass a responsible plan to replace the sequester. instead of campaigning for higher taxes, the president should our nation's sphending problem. >> as the struggle over addressing the reductions continue. march twenth is when the government funding all of it runs out. house republicans say they will pass a plan this week and
it will be toup the senate. mr. obama said the impact will not be felt immediately. but the pain will be real, uma. >> yet another showdown looms on the horizon, mike, thank you very much. >> i talked with wyoming senator who said the white house is playing politics with the lives was every day americans. >> spending cuttings are final lie going to occur. why have tried to get spending under control for a long period of time. this is just the first step. the american people realize that half of the money sent to washington and taxes is wasted. they know that washington is full of wasteful spending and now the mench people are getting what they asked for in terms of getting the spending under control because they are worried that their kids are buried under a mountain of debt. >> the cuts are happening, but many people are concerned about the specific cuts that were taking place and there a stay that the cuts could have
been prioritiized better . weep didn't have to take drastic measures with the military. >> well, the president has said that the cuts were dumb and arbitrary and i agree and i stipulated legislation that would center given the president the flexibility that he needed to make the cuts in the right places and that was a bipartisan support of that. mark warner we talked about military. septemberor warner from strirge virge and former governor of strirge virge. voted to give the president flexibility. it seems like the president didn't want flexibility. he uses fear and zipe zy to try to force the hand of raising taxs and i am not buy i know there is it another washington wasteful spenteding in term of program thars overlapping and ineffective and there is over a 110 billion in improper payments and money that went out from washington last year.
that's what we need to get under control. we need to make we watch where the money is spent and give the president the flexibility. he doesn't seem to want it. >> you have gone on saying the president chose to put our national security in jeopardy. >> the president is it the commanderp in chief and has a responsibility to make we as a nation remain strong and the president should have embraced this flexibility that he was offer would so he could make the right choices for our country. it would seem that he rather have a political argument to use and instill fear and anxiety in the hearts and minds of the american people in an effort to try to raise taxes. i am just not buying it i think our problem is wasteful washington spending and i want to make we cut that. >> the president continue to blame the republicans for the impasse. isn't it true that the president himself has the power to choose what cuts are
actually maid? >> i think the president has more flexibility that he wants to let on. it is astonishing that the secretary of education goes on national tv and stay the teachers are getting cut and that is not the case. in preparation for the sequester, a number of illegal immigrants that are detained were released, it just seems irresponsible in my mind of what? this administration is doing in an effort to try to force the congress and the american people to increase taxings when across the board and even in a bipartisan effort on the floor of the senate, the senators and democrats voted against raising taxes on anyone even though that was the president's proposal. democrats who are running for office in a number of states, north carolina, and staw saw and louisiana who vote ed against the president's
proposal of raising taxings. they know that the people in their states don't want taxes to go to go up. >> we'll ask you the final question. when you look at the big picture. the public is frustrate would with government in washington. because certainly the sequister situation was not an issue that goes back to 2011 and a lot can be done between now and then . why is there such an impasse? the people are frustrated to the point that they are not having faith in government to get anything done in a substaniative way that is it good for the mirn people. >> the mirn people are right. the presidential election, the president didn't want to come to the table to discuss the issues. you are right it has been a year and a half . the president talked about the budget situation. i would say whether - where is the budget this yearly is eye
months late. the one last year not even the democrats voted for. the senate hasn't passed a budget . the democrats have croil would that fur four years. families can't live that way and our government can't function that way. that's why i support. no budget, no pay. memberings of congress should not get paid . the american people deserve better than what they are getting today from congress and president. >> they sure do, sir. >> thank you for your insight. all the best to you. >> thanks for having me. >> a day after the president signed sequestration in laup it is it too late to go back. we didn't have to get here and create more pain. senator tom coburn's waste book documents shocking ways your taxpayer dollars are put to use. things that could have been cut and were not. take a look.
amazingly, the national institute of gave $176,000 to the university of kentucky to determine if japanese quail are more likely to have sex when high on cocaine. believe it or not that is true. perdue university received a portion of a federal government of golf study to see how their minds work in the game . a new york city theater. 697,000 to produce a musical on climate change. coburn's waste book 19 billion wasted dollars. it is it snap shot of a larger problem and you can see the entire report on the saintor's website. >> a majority of at home are weary over the politics and drama of sequester battle. a brand new fox poll 45 percent of you feel sequestration will center a negative affect on the country and 27 percent said it will
have a affect. the other 22 percent feel like it will make a difference at all. join happening us to sort through the fact anding fiction. radio talk show host monica crowley. >> hi, uma. >> we talk for a moment about the polls, many are bracing for the tough times country and yet you heard examples that i outlined talking about outrageous programs that are waisting taxpayer dollars in a time we can least afford it >> i think that number. 45 percent in the fox poll anding that the mirn people think that the sequester will negatively lie affect the country. the president has been out there pound this exaggeration of levelful pain that americans might feel from this. remember, uma, the realitiy is that we are not talking about spending cuts but slowing the
rate of government growth. 2. much cents out of federal dollar that is spint. we are talk about a minis scule amount of money and the president is it beating the drum because high is it a big spending leftist and any kind much government spending is cut that the sky is going to fall. it is the first full day of sequestration nation. can you feel it now? >> over the long term it is it much better for the country because it is it the first step to get out of control spending and debt out of control. >> to be fair. we seem to be the height of dysfunction in washington . you look at the other poll. why asked people how did the economy feel to your family? is it getting worse? 55% say yes, it is it compared to 2012. getting better.
31 percent stayed the same. >> is it any wonder why americans are fed up and so fewirsts to get rid of waste in government when they see that. >> absolutely. ape lot of people look at personal financial situation and they are worried about it there is it a sense that the economy is not getting better but getting worse. we saw in the last quarter that is negative.1 percent . only 2.1 percent positive economic that is it barely hommeding your head above the water. that is not getting better. consumer confidence is down because of the hit of the pay roll tax hike. they have less money to spend . government spending which we are talking about. government spending and the debt is a huge drag on the economy to the point where every american is now feeling it . it is affecting their personal financeless. >> to their point, our poll
asks the question. how will the country get want deficit under control. 57 percent believe that the only way to do this is with automatic am cuts. what do you think of that? >> i think that is it right. more pime ever attune tod how dramatic the debt crisis is. gal up and rasmussen and polsters under the last three or four monthings are showing a dramatic turn around on how people are viewing the debt and feel about it prior to this. economy and jobs were the issue . poll after poll is showing that the debt and deficit is in the number two postition behind the economy. it is all interrelated >> let me ask you in the final moments we have. taking a bigger look from the whole thing and whoo we are witness to in the last few weeks. finger painting and height of dysfunction in washington;
what does it say to you about getting anything done on capitol hill today? >> very tough, very tough. the president said he will be blaming the republicans and you have a constant back and forth. a lot of american people tune it out and say we likes and you have a president who threatened to veto the replacement bills that the republicansed to try to avoid this very day. the republicans pass would that in the house . the president said if you that i will vet on it. harry reid killed both bims. the president has the bully pulpit and not telling the truth. thosages get out to the american people and republicans, to refine their messaging, and make sure the american people know the truth to reign in government and
spending. >> thank you for your ininsight. >> thank you. >> bob woodward is it blasting president obama for letting sequestration cuts to affect national defense. the president's decision not to deploy a aircraft carrier because of budget concerns thoored to be -- under the constitution, the president is commander in chief and and employs the force. the president because of the piece of paper and agreement. i can't do what i need to do to protect the country, that is it a kind of madness that i haven't seen in a long time. >> some are taking it as a reference to richard nixon. it is it a running dispute between him and the white house. >> turning to a big story

in about a wike, the epa will post the draft report and a 45 day public comment period will begin. >> and the speaker are of the house john boehner made up his mind and said today a report makes clear there is no rain for it to be blocked one more day. it is time for president to stand up for middle class jobs and energy security and approve the key stone pipe line. the flip side comes from democrat congressman who said on the energy and commerce committee. we don't need dirty oil to stop climate change and destructive storms and flood and wildfires that we are experiencing. we should investin clear e
