Mark Slattery: Something happened

May 9, 2013 

Something happened

Charles Krauthammer wrote that “nothing happened” when the sequester cuts went into effect (“King Obama: the fall,” May 3 column). A quick Internet search will prove that many programs have been cut: programs that help children, the disabled, the elderly and veterans. One can argue about the necessity of the cuts, but to say that “nothing happened” is dishonest and immoral.
