Sequester Shocker: It Feels Like Nothing's Changed


It's been over a month since the automatic federal spending cuts
known as "the sequester" kicked in and Reason TV's Kennedy reports
from the suddenly-mean streets of Washington, D.C.


Before sequestration began on March 1, President Barack
Obama warned that budget trims of up to $85 billion in 2013 would
force brutal and devastating shutdowns of programs related to
everything from vaccination to school
lunches. 
The director of the National
Zoo 
told
the Washington Post
 he feared he might have to shut
down popular exhibits featuring lions and tigers. 


Homeland Security Secretary Janet
Napolitano 
told
travelers to expect much longer lines
 at airports
due to cuts for the Transportation Security Administration (TSA).
The White House even

cancelled tours
 of the president's home.


So just how brutal is post-sequester life in the nation’s
capital now that as much as 2 percent of annual federal spending is
on the chopping block?


About 2 minutes. Produced by Joshua Swain. Written by Kennedy
and Nick Gillespie.
