    Default How Has Sequester Affected YOU???

    Just curious what type of unbearable atrocities you or you family have had to face as a result of the Sequester and the subsequent reduction in future spending increases?

    When you ask for little or even less than that, it is hard to be affected by any downsize . Having no expectations except those that we can create for ourselves places us in an enviable position. I just hope the tomato crop is better this year than it has been the last couple of years . I love vine ripened tomatoes!!!

    You asked a question. You must have an answer in mind. Here in NM we have several national laboratories charged with producing and upgrading our nuclear deterent status. Is cutting their funding what Stan would see as advantageous at this juncture? SP? JD

    It has not directly impacted me yet other than working month to month and hoping there will be a charge number provided for the next month...a little stressful. Today is the last day of April...will I have a charge number for May? Several people were handed pink slips last month...

    The "Obamaphone" a part of Lifeline. Washington Post says this:

    "Lifeline was begun not by President Obama but under Ronald Reagan. It expanded to include cellphone service during the presidency of another Republican, George W. Bush. ... Never mind all that. “Obama phone” has stuck."

    Now not go out and end a good rant by trying to insert facts.
    Its much better topic when we can use the Youtube videos of crackheads (intercity not Limbaugh), when discussing how the program came to terms.
    On a more serious note the program (that should have never been started), has been allowed to grow at an asinine rate, but if you want to get your facts straight use "Reagen phone".
