Just a sampling here of spending cuts (sequester) brought on by Washington’s failure to make a deal:
- Cut more than $400 million from Head Start, forcing roughly 70,000 children out of the program.
- Slash nearly $725 million from Title I — the largest federal education program (schools serving more than 1 million disadvantaged students must find other sources to pay for teachers and tutors.)
- Equipment and staffing needs for police and fire departments cut by more than $35 million.
- Furloughs in the Federal Aviation Administration and the Transportation Security Administration would mean more delayed flights and even longer wait times at the airport.
- Cut funding to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service, resulting in more than 2,100 fewer food inspections.
- Home-delivered meals to the elderly cut by more than $43 million.
- More than 830,000 fewer workers receive services, such as job training, provided by the Labor Department’s Employment Services Operations and Job Corps.
