Repeat It Often and Loudly: Sequestration is the Law and It is All About Spending Cuts

From a previous piece, but something that should be hammered home, loudly and often by conservative supporters.
Sequestration is the law and it is all about spending cuts.
On March 1, $85 billion in across-the-board federal spending cuts—known in Washington as the sequester or sequestration, are set to begin, prompted by a 2011 law designed to reduce the government's budget deficit.
Excellent description of what the sequester is at WSJ.
There are no taxes, tax revenue, loophole eliminations or deduction eliminations, written into the sequestration law. 
As Barack Obama takes to his bully pulpit and Democrats take to their interviews and the media covers for Obama screaming taxes revenue at the top of their lungs, it is time for all GOP supporters to remind everyone they know, through social media, emails, blog posts,  every forum they can comment on, "Sequestration is the law and it is all about spending cuts."
Liberals like Ezra Klein, are trying to claim, "but everyone knew that tax revenue would be added in to any replacement of the sequester"....  it doesn't change the fact that the sequester is all spending cuts, no taxes, and it was proposed by the Obama administration,  passed by both the Senate and the House and signed by Barack Obama.
With this coordinated message, conservatives can easily bypass the media who focuses on Obama's messaging.
