SEQUESTER: Adjust to less spending and move on

Re: “Sequestration could cost state tens of millions” (TNT, 3-8).

Define “cuts could mean,” “cuts could cause” and “estimate potential job loss.” The state Department of Health, Department of Social and Health Services and Educational Service District 113 painted doom for thousands of people and laid blame but didn’t look at themselves for creating and catering to the problem.

Sounds like “Waaa, Waaa, gimme, gimme” instead of trim the fat and tighten the belt.

Which is it: The “people” will suffer with less aid and services (entitlements) or is it the department/employees get less? Give me a break.

Why can’t everyone “suck it up” and think of our country rather than themselves. Stop the spending! Ask your parents or grandparents about making do and be educated. The departments and recipients should make the adjustments and move on.
