Harry Reid falsely claims on Twitter that “[The] Sequester’s a tough pill to swallow, but it’s a balanced approach to reduce the deficit that shares the pain as well as the responsibility.” That is a blatant lie. The sequester is unjust, disproportionate, unbalanced, destructive, dangerous, and stupid.
What can I do to stop sequestration from happening?
