4 of Iowa's 6 members of Congress were quoted in a Cedar Rapids Gazette article about sequestration.

Braley says sequestration ‘looks likely to continue’

CONgressman Bruce Braley went so far as to call it
“a failure".

As the Wall Street Journal’s Stephen Moore has noted, federal spending has fallen by $150 billion since it peaked in fiscal 2011, a four percent decline. Spending reductions like that have not been achieved since President Eisenhower's first term.

Washington needs even more failures like that and the scientific community is united in that fact.

Tax and spenders CommieTommie Harkin, MiniCommie and Dave No Sack...err Loebsack all think Congress should be making targeted cuts.

How did that work out?

The lone Republican cited, Chuck Grassley, had this to say --

“Sequestration, while not an ideal way to institute spending reductions, was an important and necessary step to start getting our fiscal house in order. We need to continue to hold the line on unnecessary spending, particularly when we’re going to face another debt limit increase in October.”

By the way, the Gazette fails to mention that sequestration was an Obama administration idea.
