Sequester Watch, #26

October 15th, 2013 at 11:03 am

To their credit, people keep asking me “what’s going on with sequestration?”   Well, here’s our 26th (!) post tracking just that.  More on Head Start, housing, the military, and others still getting whacked by this.

It is to their credit that Senate Democrats have recently added replacing sequestration cuts to the ongoing fiscal negotiations.  When a problem like this drags on for this long, the danger is that it becomes the new normal.  That’s bad fiscal policy, bad social policy, and just plain bad.
