President Barack Obama delivered surprise remarks on the sequester Friday morning, once again slamming Republicans for the across-the-board budget cuts that are scheduled to take effect at midnight.

Sequester “is happening because of a choice that Republicans made,” Obama said, adding that the GOP’s unwillingness to prevent the sequester indicates that the party is “out of step” with the rest of the country.

“We just need Congress to catch up with their own party and country with this,” Obama said. “If they did so, we could make a lot of progress. I do know that there are Republicans in Congress who privately, at least, say that they would rather close tax loopholes than let these cuts go through. I know that there are Democrats who would rather do entitlement reform than let these cuts go through.”
