5 Worst Things To Expect From The Sequester

Longer Waits At Airports

As if traveling isn’t stressful enough, prepare to wait in longer security lines. The Federal Aviation Administration would be forced to make $600 million in cuts, resulting in reduced hours for 47,000 employees. Changes to TSA agents and air traffic controllers not only pose an inconvenience to travelers, but raise serious safety concerns. Emergency responders would also be affected by sequestration—fewer firefighters, as well as a reduction in necessary equipment that keep families and communities safe.

  • Has anybody told Rand Paul?

    Pharaoh Republican Boehner wont let American people be anything but slaves. Now we must produce bricks AND gather the straw. President Obama MUST NOT knuckle-under to Pharaoh Boehner! Will history repeat itself? Is there a similarity here? Hmmm…..
    You’ll find the account in Exodus 1-12.

    In that the Republicans in their defiance are seeking to destroy America, where are the laws about treason to put these rebels in jail? Lock’em up, Sheriff!

      you should know that dems just dont have the power to stop republiCONs.

      Either that or what the republiCONs are doing to America is just fine with the gutless dems.

  • nobsartist

    I guess this will have an impact on the republiCON jobs plan to employ people thru endless war.

    That the dems fully support……and let them do under bush.

    That brings up a point. Maybe thats why dems supported all of bush’s bs.

    Sounds like a republican wet dream to me. It will be hard to tell where Mexico leaves off and America begins. Just what the reich wing wants. Isn’t there a law against destroying our country?

  • And yet where is the effort to remove the oil and gas subsidies that would save us ten billion dollars a year.
