The sequester solution should never have been thought of! It is idiocy at it's worst! Our government has to remember that they are working for us and we would never have approved such an idea. This Teapublican idea ( people that are addicted to no taxes for the wealthy) Have no interest in serving the needs of the middle class and the poor. Their only function is to serve their Wall Street Contributors! Their thought is ," Who cares about the middle class and the poor as long as my Wall Street buddies are happy?" Congress has to think about the 99% because we don't have powerful lawyers and lobbyists to help us!

The sequester will cause massive cuts to medical research, the military, and education this will be a major Job Killer not Job Maker! We  can't let this happen! Tell Congress to let the wealthy pay their fare share to keep our country going and spend a little money for the least of us! Touch their heart(if they have one) with pictures of children not getting vaccines to keep them healthy. Tell them that needed research will not happen because funding will stop because of sequester! Let them know that schools with already bulging class sizes will get even larger because teachers will lose their jobs. Class sizes  of 75+ are not out of the picture.

There will be less police and law enforcement officers to do background checks on gun purchasers. Think more Sandy Hooks! The military will be shrunk too.

Congress has to work for us and yes Republicans too. They have to have consciences too! Only people that work for the common good should go into politics not the weak and greedy! We must have people that are warriors against poverty and ignorance and will see to it that everyone in this country will have their basic needs met and a chance to reach self actualization!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

  •  You want Republicans to have a conscience? (0+ / 0-)

    OK, that's exhibit A for why we should embrace the sequester as the best deal possible so long as Republicans have a majority in Congress.  The alternatives are based on the most laughable fantasy.

    And we should shrink the military, so I don't know what your problem is with that.
