Well, big surprise, they did it! The Money Party is in a cannibalistic feeding frenzy with the failure to come to an agreement on spending cuts. Now the sequester Frankenstein hits the streets. This link takes you to an interactive map. Scroll down, click on your state, and you will see what goes right away. These are government jobs. The ripple effect into private sector jobs is next if this process continues.
Of course, small business will be hit hard. Main street will take a beating.
But here’s the sleeper issue. 100 to 160 regional airports will be closing within the next two weeks. Why Those closed are among the 240 smaller airports with contractors serving as air traffic controllers. So if you have a ticket to any of these airports, good luck: Naples, FL; Macon, GA; Sioux City, IA; Columbia, MO; Hilton Head, SC; Everett, WA; or several of the major Executive airports. And, here’s a map of delayed flights.
Too bad we can’t sequester congressional pay checks until they fix this.
