Obviously, we couldn't afford to borrow as much as we do, and would have forced austerity - very similar to what Greece is going through.

Anecdotal and local effects of the sequester must be endured, adapted to, and overcome. Generate value through innovation. Generate revenue through indepedent work. Create. Work.
