The FFDO program is generally popular with the public and with Congress.

By threatening to need to cut it due to (ridiculously minimal) funding, he pulls another pre-sequestration stunt to try to force a tax hike by threatening a program people, and particularly his political opponents, want to keep.

Standard, cynical Chicago racket ploy.
