Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) on Monday urged lawmakers to call the president’s “bluff” and empower the White House to make targeted spending cuts to avoid sequestration.

“They should find an alternative, they should do their job and why not empower the president and his administration. Give them the authority within their budgets to make those changes so they don’t have to do some of the things they are talking about,” said Walker on “Fox & Friends.”…

“Call the bluff, give them the authority to do this as governors, Democrat and Republican alike, we have to do this all the time, we have to make those tough choices,” he said. “Allow them to make the cuts in a way that is much more responsible.”
