Case in Point: the Sequester
Previous Entry :: Next Entry

This is taken from the "First Read from NBC News verbatim" -- I couldn't have said it better:

As soon as business travelers are inconvenienced for LESS THAN A WEEK, Congress takes action to fix the sequester. But where are the fixes to the sequester cuts to programs benefitting the poor, like Head Start? The White House, which said it will sign the fix into law, made that very point even as it showed no stomach for this fight. "We hope Congress will find the same sense of urgency and bipartisan cooperation to help the families who have had children kicked out of Head Start, the seniors who have lost access to Meals On Wheels, the hard-working employees who have been laid off due to defense cuts, and the 750,000 Americans who have lost a job or won't find one because of the sequester." The lesson here: Congress will act, but only if it and its friends are hurt or simply inconvenienced. That's a devastating indictment on how Washington works.
