Questions have emerged over whether the negative consequences of the across-the-board budget cuts known as sequestration have been over or understated. Some members of the media and federal policymakers have suggested that the impact of cuts has not been as dire as predicted. However, the information they have presented has focused primarily on federal staffing and direct government services, failing to recognize the severity of the arbitrary cuts to the communities outside the Beltway.
As evident in the state-by-state impact stories communities and organizations throughout the US are telling, the damaging effects of sequestration are real and are likely to get worse. Stories like these will help policymakers understand the costs of sequestration at a time when major decisions are approaching about appropriations, the continuing resolution, and whether to continue these arbitrary cuts.
