    yesterday, about how the Rs have forced important parts of the government into inaction by restricting money via the sequester.

    He detailed how much had been lost in tax revenue due to sequester layoffs (and further IRS cuts are estimated to reduce tax revenue by $4.5 billion), Dodd-Frank is being eviscerated,how worker safety has been eviscerated (c.f. West, TX explosion), and even ACA has had to be forestalled (reportedly til 2015 for small businesses) because of the sequester.

    The comment is a video, "The Hollowing out of Government." Unfortunately, I don't know how to link to it, but here's the link to his page. Well worth reading.

    "Defunding a law attracts no attention" and it makes government look inept. More fodder for the hate the government types.

    "There's nothing serious about a plan that claims to reduce the deficit by spending a trillion dollars on tax cuts for millionaires and billionaires." - President Obama
