Or I may have thought to myself, "'Scrutinized-If' is an odd couple of words to hyphenate," or, "Gee, I wonder what the auxiliary verb we use to create the present perfect is? Might it somehow be the preposition 'of'?".

Seriously. Grammar and conventions.

Quote from: Obama
“The sequester is not something that I've proposed. It is something that Congress has proposed.”
According to a liberal fact checker at the Washington Post (http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/bob-woodward-obamas-sequester-deal-changer/2013/02/22/c0b65b5e-7ce1-11e2-9a75-dab0201670da_story.html), "The automatic spending cuts were initiated by the White House and were the brainchild of Lew and White House congressional relations chief Rob Nabors — probably the foremost experts on budget issues in the senior ranks of the federal government. Obama personally approved of the plan for Lew and Nabors to propose the sequester to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.)."
