    Not much.



    If the cuts are not reversed, we see the sequestration as a modest negative for the economy and, to some extent, stocks over the next three to six months.
    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.

    it means 85 billion dollars released to the private sector rather than to be squandered by government.
    How is obama working out for you?

    In the overall scheme of economic things, not a whole heck of a lot. But politically, maybe a lot. president hussein lost a battle, and now needs excuses. But the Republicans, specifically John Boehner, didn't cave!

    The market is certainly happy today, whatever the reason. That means I'm happy too. ;)

    Only if the government was running a surplus. Are we running a surplus?

    The government does not produce wealth, less money spent by the government means more money for the economy, for you that would mean more drugs.
