We've been hearing dire warnings about the impact of sequestration for weeks now, with the White House & their supporters trying to make Congressional Republicans look like the villains. Back in February, President Obama told us,
Quote:
"Hundreds of thousands of Americans will lose access to primary care and preventive care like flu vaccinations and cancer screenings".
At a House Appropriations subcommittee meeting on Tuesday, Maryland Rep Andy Harris pointed out that while the sequestration cut the budget for the 317 Immunization program by $30 million, the President's proposed 2013 budget would have cut the same program by almost twice that.
