White House and Sequestration Predictions

About that federal budget again. On Thursday, I posted an interactive map provided by Business Insider showing what impact the budget cuts would have on individual states. The White House has developed its own map showing that impact along different programs.

Yes, the predictions are as dire as expected although those gracious fact checkers over at PolitiFact are keeping our politicians accountable by verifying their claims. The verdict: Many of the doomsday scares are overblown. Whether or not it's to push a certain agenda or a genuine oversite remains to be seen.

 Visit the highlighted links and decide for yourselves. The next post will deal with the budget cuts and my favorite topic: Women. I'm going to examine how all this bantering will impact us. Stay tuned.
