Here we are: Six months into sequestration. It was supposed to be so painful that it wasn’t supposed to happen. But the pain is here and the American people are feeling it.
Despite the efforts of many in Washington, and after nearly 18 months of believing it wouldn’t actually happen, sequestration is now the reality. The government has had to deal with automatic, across-the-board cuts to almost every federal department.
But “cuts” is probably the wrong term, unless you’re accustomed to cutting with a bulldozer instead of a knife.
