This week there were large budget cuts implemented. They cut down government spending by $85 million in the next year and $1.2 trillion in the next ten. The cuts are going to affect many government run facilities, and some workers will have to be furloughed. As a result there will be consequences such as longer lines at airports.

The sequester was supposed to hurry the congress into negotiating a budget deal but that has obviously failed. I think that the congress men should really try harder at reaching a compromise. They need to not be so stubborn for the good of the country. If they could just get out of the grid lock then they should be able to help themselves and the country.
