The 2-year federal government meltdown is finally at Code Red and the sequester is here.
We have endless stories about the gridlock, the economic effects and the blame game.
But here, in one place, I plan to collect basic information in a usable form without bias: When and where the sequester cuts are happening.
The goal is to show actual cuts, not just predictions. In the early days, it’s still going to be more of the latter. Look for constant updates.
