    but somehow I ended up married to a border patrol agent.  He's a republican but many of his fellow agents are democrats and so am I.

    We all knew the sequester was coming but I don't think anyone anticipated that one group of federal employees would be getting a 35% cut in pay.  I guess someone's got to take the hit so we'll figure out how to make do but we really weren't prepared for this big of a loss of income.  Sounds like we should have been, though.

    I want immigration reform to happen but I don't see how the republicans will agree to that once the 17,000 border patrol agents are cut by the equivalent of 5,000 agents.
