Obama: Sequestration=Airport Delays

President Obama warned on Tuesday that airline passengers might face longer travel times if automatic budget cuts known as "sequestration" are allowed to take effect. In a pitch to lawmakers made against a backdrop of emergency first responders, Obama included cuts to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and Transportation Security Administration (TSA) in a long list of what he said would be stark consequences of allowing the sequester to take place. "Air traffic controllers and airport security will see cutbacks, which means more delays at airports across the country," Obama said/Keith Laing, The Hill. More here.

Question: Are you worried about the impact of sequestration? Or do you even know what it is?
