Sequester Watch, #9

June 17th, 2013 at 10:26 am

Our ninth version monitoring the impact of sequestration on both the micro (lots this week on health care and research; also seniors) and the macro (see IMF stuff).

One other point on this.  In discussions of sequestration, I not infrequently run into people who think it’s a one-year thing.  If we can just get through 2013, it will all be over.  No, it won’t.  The sequester is on the books until 2021.

There are a million more important reasons to kill it before then, but do you really want to see Sequester Watch #1864, etc…?!?
