State by State Impacts of Sequestration: Or How Bad GOP Policy Will Hurt You and Your Friends

There is a great page at the Washington Post showing the real, state by state, impacts of the Sequester that kicked in yesterday.

The Sequester  which no one seems to be paying much attention to yet.

This is another one of those unnecessary crises that Washington Republicans specialize in creating.

And, of course, they don’t care in the least about the impacts on people or government services that help and protect us all.  All they care about is choking off as many of these government services as possible to align with their doctrinaire, Conservative ideologue, Washington-bubble induced vision that all government is bad….

Maybe it will take the people feeling the impacts of these arbitrary cuts to realize how important government programs are for all of us….

It’s a shame when people only realize the importance of what they have when they lose it…

But that may just be human nature…..

Maybe it has to be personal…

The impacts to the Economy from the resulting job and income loses don’t mean much to most people unless it hits them directly….

Maybe this is what it will take for  people to put some pressure on the GOP to stop acting like selfish, spoiled children and vote them out of office in the House and Senate in 2014.

Here is a link to the information at the Washington Post:  http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/special/politics/sequestration-state-impact/
