At 11:59pm on the first of March the sequester will commence. The far right, which is the new Republican base, is giddy. Their feeling is that any cuts to government spending, even if it’s harmful to individuals and the overall economy, is a good cut. Plus they feel that they won one on the President’s earlier claim when he said the sequester would not happen. Those that will be directly impacted are not happy. The most curious thing is that the majority in Congress publicly say it’s a bad idea and are blaming the other side, yet they stand aside and let it happen. Smells political.
