The Truth About Sequestration


Imagine a morbidly obese man riding a power scooter into McDonalds. Imagine him ordering five Big Macs, three McChickens, three large fries, a 20-piece Chicken McNuggets meal, two McFlurrys, and a small Diet Coke--all of which he pays for using the college savings of his children.

Now imagine his wife, concerned about his health, taking away his Diet Coke. And imagine his protests that this will starve him to death.

That's the sequestion debate in a nutshell! Pretty stupid, isn't it?
