Anyone have any feel for what services will be affected if the sequester goes through?

I'm specifically wondering about immigration, customs and domestic air travel. My husband is headed home from a long trip overseas and I'm wondering if he should expect problems.

6. I'm also on VA combat disability, and it's good to know we'll be okay

But the sequester hurts a lot of other people who don't deserve it.

7. Indeed

It's madness to try to cut our way to prosperity, unless we're
cutting tax give-aways to the Corporate Overlords.
