Can we citizens stop the Sequester?

 The short answer is YES: Tell your elected officials to support HR 900. The full text is below:
HR 900 IH
113th CONGRESS
1st Session
H. R. 900
To eliminate the sequestration under section 251A of the Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985, and for other purposes.
IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

February 28, 2013

Mr. CONYERS (for himself, Ms. JACKSON LEE, Ms. WILSON of Florida, and Mr. GRAYSON) introduced the following bill; which was referred to the Committee on the Budget

A BILL
To eliminate the sequestration under section 251A of the Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985, and for other purposes.
    Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled,

SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.

    This Act may be cited as the Cancel the Sequester Act of 2013’.

SEC. 2. REPEAL OF 251A SEQUESTRATION.

    Section 251A of the Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985 is repealed.
Urge your representative to support this bill. Across the board cuts are the WRONG way to proceed. We need real solutions, not stopgap idiocy. Keep reading Wonders.KaeBender.com this upcoming week for background and suggestions for a more fiscally-conservative and well-considered SOLUTION.
