After all the daily and nightly news coverage...it's here and I have personally seen zero effect. Is anyone in EF land seeing the effect of this "sequestration"?

It hasn't hit yet, but my uncle who is the sole provider for his immediate family (he is the mailman on a base) will be getting his hours cut quite a bit.


Just remember: It will take a while for the full bite to be realized. Sequestration is set up to force Washington to do their jobs.

Sequestration has nothing to do with the Post Office. They are being cut back because we don't pay our bills through through the mail or write letters anymore - they are the modern day buggy whip crowd.

The deficit will be reduced through a 'budget deal' or sequestration, so spending is going down. We have to stop spending our grand-children's money!

Not yet, though my partner works for a company that produces engines for the Department of Defense, so we could see the effects in some way.

You are right, sequestration has nothing to do with the USPS. It does however affect military funding, which in turn affects the Military Postal Service.

Yes, the deficit will go down. There is a good possibility that it will hurt people financially though.
