Take a look at the history of sequestration from its first use in the 1980s to today’s cuts.
The House of Representatives put PAYGO back into place in 2006, shortly after Democrats won back control of both houses of Congress, and the Senate passed a similar measure in 2008, but with one key difference: The old PAYGO system was a law that required increased spending be offset by budget cuts or more revenue. The new PAYGO system is a procedural rule that doesn’t legally require those offsets.
