When the “sequester” first became law many said: “see, no impact, it’s good to cut government spending at all levels.” This week we’re seeing a different story. At the beginning of a busy travel season the FAA is forced to furlough air traffic controllers resulting in delayed flights. This impacts everyone traveling by air, including those in Congress that allowed the sequester to become law.
Soon we will see cuts in defense that will impact those employed by the military directly and indirectly is a major way.
The sequester was stupid, and now we’re paying the price.
