Correct me if I'm wrong, but weren't we supposed to all have died in a fiery crash while old people ate their grandchildren as a result of the automatic spending cuts included in the sequester legislation that took effect a while back?
What happened?"Our president delivered his State of the Union message to Congress. That is one of the things his contract calls for -- to tell congress the condition of the country. This message, as I say, is to Congress. The rest of the people know the condition of the country, for they live in it, but Congress has no idea what is going on in America, so the president has to tell 'em." ~ Will Rogers

Did you forget? We actually died when Republicans shut the government down when Klinton was president.
Four boxes keep us free: the soap box, the ballot box, the jury box, and the cartridge box.

Everyone that was supposed to feel the "pain" of the sequester found a way to get a special exemption or their furloughs reduced if not completely stopped.
The only place it actually hurt was the military.

The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.

Another thing that suffered were White House visits. The sequester, however, didn't hurt the Obama's vacation schedule.The Obama Administration: Deny. Deflect. Blame.

It is certainly being felt in the Washington area, and we anticipate it will get worse in 2014. While you all may celebrate that, it does impact real people with families."Today, [the American voter] chooses his rulers as he buys bootleg whiskey, never knowing precisely what he is getting, only certain that it is not what it pretends to be." - H.L. Mencken
