Worst Case Sequester Scenario - Nothing Happens!

The big sequester gamble: How badly will the cuts hurt?
“The good news is, the world doesn’t end March 2. The bad news is, the world doesn’t end March 2,” said Emily Holubowich, a Washington health-care lobbyist who leads a coalition of 3,000 nonprofit groups fighting the cuts. “The worst-case scenario for us is the sequester hits and nothing bad really happens. And Republicans say: See, that wasn’t so bad.”
The sequester will hurt this region, as dependent as we are on cash trickling out of Washington DC down the commuter trail, and several large military installations, including the Pentagon and Patuxent River Naval Air Station.  But, it's still worth it. And MD votes for democrats no matter what.
