Sequester Watch, #29

November 4th, 2013 at 6:46 pm

Sequestration continues to whack budgets, programs, and communities across the land.  The longer these cuts persist, the more they become the “new normal,” i.e., an accepted and expected component of future budgets/CRs.  It’s good to hear that the White House recognizes this danger and would like to see sequestration replaced.  But that will take compromise, and that’s something you see very little of these days.
