Covered at Reason 24/7: Sequestration Fearmongering Failing


The “Administration That Cried Wolf” is
now reaping the consequences. As the sequestration drags on, more
and more Americans are wondering what the big deal was about the
cuts.


Via
Greg Sargent
at The Washington Post:



A
new McClatchy-Marist poll
finds that the percentage of
Americans who don’t believe the sequester cuts are hurting the
economy has actually jumped 13 points over the last month,
while the percentage who think they are damaging the economy is
going down:


When it comes to the impact of the automatic spending cuts on
the economy, 40 percent of adults nationally say they have had no
effect on the economy. 36 percent believe they have had a negative
impact while 14 percent say the sequester cuts have had a positive
one. 10 percent are unsure.


There has been an increase in the proportion of Americans who
think these across-the-board spending cuts have had little impact
on the nation’s economy.



That wasn’t what the president was hoping to hear.
