These cuts are not the end of the world. They are considerably less than what local governments and the private sector have endured over the past 5 years. But it is a poor way to cut back.  Neither the Executive or Legislative branches of the Federal Government have done a good job with these cuts.

And cutting government expenses when our economy is so weak is not good. Hopefully the recovery can shrug this off and get employment back on track again.
