Best of 2013 #8 – A Year of Government Dysfunction: The Sequester and the Shutdown

Play

One of the biggest national stories in 2013 was the continuing inability for the Federal Government to govern in a bi-partisan manner or in fact to govern at all. Beginning with the automatic cuts commonly referred to as the sequester in March as a result of the Budget Control Act of 2011 and reaching a breaking point with the October government shut down, political infighting, intransigence, and incompetence set the tone for 2013 and affected everyone from the inner circle in DC to the residents here in Monroe County.
