    $85 BLN sequestration cuts, come into affect today

    This is the ripple effect, that will be felt for years and this is the turning point of U.S spending and hopefully they will realize they are crumbling from the inside out and the whole world is watching, the Roman empire falling all over again http://rt.com/usa/us-braces-for-sequester-651/

    Nothing more than hype. The "automatic cuts" that happen are going to take place over the next two years. It's not like money is just going to vanish out of thin air. In 2012 we had a 1.3T deficit on our 3.5T federal budget. The CBO thinks about 44B in cuts would happen in 2013.

    Against last years figures, it's approximately 3% reduction of our annual deficit and about 1% total of the federal budget.

    Yes, some agencies will be impacted, but it's not the end of the world. It's not like we're Ron Pauling the deficit and seriously tackling our debt and spending issues. This is just smoke in mirrors from our politicians, the media is feeding it to you with the largest spoon they have, and you're swallowing it without a second thought.

    My predictions:
    * Unemployment will slowly tick upward a percentage point or two, but not rise above 9.5%
    * This will be the Republicans fault.
    * GDP growth will be even slower; doubtful this ushers in a recession.
    * Credit Rating get's cut again in the next year or two.
    * We'll continue to have 1T+ deficits for the rest of the Obama presidency.

    Is it wrong of me to say that overpopulation is one of the problems?

    Overpopulation has nothing to do with it. All this is is just Republicans and Democrats playing a fake game of chicken, knowing full well that these "cuts" are only "cuts" in proposed spending increases. Coincidentally, the $85 billion in cuts is about the amount the FED prints on a monthly basis. As I see things from where I'm sitting, we all may as well let the dollar tank and lose its last bit of value and go into default like we should. There is no point in even trying to avoid it any longer.

    Unemployment dropped to 7.7% after February. Are these cuts going to affect the economy's recovery?
