Your Opinion: Thoughts on sequestration

February 28th, 2013 by Hal Hebert, Jefferson City in News

Dear Editor:

What's not to like? Part 1: Sequestration

Wikipedia: "Budget sequestration is a procedure in United States law that has the effect of limiting the size of the federal budget. Sequestration involves setting a hard cap on the amount of government spending within broadly-defined categories ..."

"... Sequestration was later included as part of the Budget Control Act of 2011, which resolved the debt-ceiling crisis ..."

Obama claims that the sequestration cuts will cause job losses among policeman, firemen and teachers.

Hey! Aren't policemen, firemen and teachers hired on the local and state level?

Oops!

Hey! Wasn't sequestration Obama's idea?

Oops!

But Hey, what's not to like?

Stay tuned!
