  •  The Sequestor Is Starting To Hit Hard (7+ / 0-)

    Congress should be ashamed of themselves for not doing something about this.  It makes me very angry that children and seniors could be going without food.  My husband is a government worker and will lose pay, but it is nothing compared to those who are so poor that losing one meal a day is a matter of life and death.

    •  Yeah, I wouldn't call this spike "unexpected." (0+ / 0-)

      It was only unexpected by Republican idiots ideologues who wanted to pretend that the sequester would be painless, except for delaying their flights, and they got right on that.

      The GOP can't win on ideas. They can only win by lying, cheating, and stealing. So they do.
