So why do you bring it up as an aspect of the sequester as though it's a negative?
Who cares if "people figure it out" as you say?
We need more of this kind of thing not less.
I saw a poll that 30% of Americans said they had even heard of the term "Sequester", and of that I would guess less than 5% really understand the magnitude of what we are dealing with.
Hannity is a bore - he mocks it with music from the "Omen" and repeats constantly that it is "2.4% of all spending" about 1,390,0954 times each program. The problem with Hannity is that he knows he is being disingenuous - the Sequester doesn't touch 2/3rds of all spending, but I imagine all Hannity really cares about is protecting his own wallet. Good for him, but he needs to stop being truthful about how hard this hit Defense. I am an engineer, if he needs basic math lessons he can e-mail me.
For the rest of the nation, when Joe or Shaniqua find out their unemployment check is down 10%, they are going to scream bloody murder.
I posted that - Lol!
I talk about my math skills, and that was an appropriate typo!
OK - time for me to step away from all computers and go work on the classic car.
