So here we are at Sequestration Day (as my friend Steven says, he wishes this word would be removed from the language [right along with ‘comprehensive’ and ‘package’]), and all we’re hearing about is the pain that will be inflicted on society. Has anyone heard about the PAY CUTS that will inflict members of Congress if this happens? **sounds of crickets chirping** No? Didn’t think so. And for the record, this goes for both sides of the aisle…plenty of accountability to go around on this one!
I also notice that as of 9:15am here in California, the stock market is actually in positive territory! At this point, I don’t sense that anyone is taking this whole thing seriously…not consumers, not the stock market, and certainly not anyone in Washington DC.
