    The point of the sequester was to cut costs with obvious pain points so that Congress and the President would be forced to do their jobs and manage thefederal budget effectively and cooperatively. Sadly, this is an example of how Americans with effective political voices (that is, people who can afford to be significantly inconvenienced by long lines at airports) are being heard, while those who don't (single moms with kids in Head Start prorgrams) continue to bear the weight of sequestering. Shame on the Democrats for easing the burdon of the wealthy (yet again) while the working class and poor get ignored.
