Remember how some people were saying the only thing wrong with the stimulus was that it wasn't big enough? Well, that's how I feel about the sequester:
Credit rating agencies are shrugging off sequestration, saying the U.S. government will need to do more to reduce the deficit if it wants to prevent a downgrade of the nation’s credit rating.
While the agencies say the $85 billion in automatic spending cuts represent at least a step towards deficit reduction, they argue much more is needed to prevent the United States from losing its “AAA” rating.
So quit yer whining; we've got a long way to go. Just saw a poll in which more than half the people in the country think the sequester will probably hurt them personally. Jeez. Props to the fearmongers.
