Sizing up the sequester

During the last few weeks all of the talk has been about the upcoming sequestration. This means that the government will arbitrarily start cutting funding to programs and departments in an effort to to cut down on our national deficit. Of course if it were up to me I would end things like no bid contracts,subsidies for oil companies and close up tax loopholes that allow companies like Facebook to get away with paying no taxes and receive a refund of over $400million. Since my ideas wont be getting any play in congress, you might as well click on the picture below to see how the sequester will uniquely screw over your state. For instance in the town of Warren,MI they will lose a ton of defense jobs. Let's hope that congress can get something done to stop this upcoming unneeded economic collapse.
