Big business didn’t send in the big lobbying guns to knock sense into Congress and Obama to avoid sequester. Federal agencies already have solid contingency plans. The cuts are a mere 2.5%, which isn’t much at all. The total cuts are $85 billion, which is chump change compared to the $1 trillion deficit the government currently runs.
All the huffing and puffing on both sides is aimed at scoring political points against the other and not arriving at a meaningful solution. We are governed by mediocrities with no apparent interest in actually governing.
