The truth is that the sequester’s defense cuts, if they go through, WILL be devastating, and that’s because they were DELIBERATELY designed to be. The logic was that, with such a sword of Damocles hanging over both defense (which conservatives care about) and the Medicare program (which liberals care about), the Super Committee would be so scared that they would manage to somehow craft a compromise deal by November 23rd, 2011. Such an assumption would’ve been logical if we were talking about something other than a government organization, or at least anything other than the US Congress. But, as conservative Senate candidate Adam Hasner says, “count on Washington to fail to do its job”. The Congress, as usual, failed to do its job, and thus the sequester was triggered.

Defense was being held hostage, with the sequester threatening to kill it if the Super Committee failed to come up with $1.5 trill
