    but some of the employees being sequestered do need it. I wish a fund would be established to help restore to the employees at least some of the money they are being docked. That would be real solidarity and could make a real difference.

      I'm not sure how quickly it could be implemented though.

      The sequester only runs through September. It will hurt, for sure, but it won't last forever.

      Though I'm sure it will seem like that to the people affected.
