'Oh, the Programs You'll Cut': A Dr. Seuss Sequestration Poem

by Liz Dwyer

March 4, 2013

Thanks to Congress' failure to reach a compromise today, the staggering federal spending cuts of the sequestration are upon us. Even if you're one of the 59 percent of people who thinks the sequestration will only have a minor impact on your life, you should expect to see what the Washington Post calls an "era of deeper austerity" and a "phase of uncertainty for Americans who rely on the government for employment or services." And that includes a hit to much-needed education programs, too.

I doubt many Americans want to head home tonight and read this poem to the kids in their lives. But maybe we should—after all, this is the future we're handing to them if Congress doesn't get it together soon.
