The Sequester and You
With your host, Hollingsworth Hound TM
Hound: I'm taking time off before my vacation to explain the sequester! 
Hound: My economists say the deficit will ruin the economy! 
Hound: So the sequester reduces spending in an apolitical, fair way! 
CANCER CLINIC
Hound: Government services to the unemployed, poor and sick are reduced...
Hound: ...but so is the military! 
ARY BASE CHILD CARE
CLOSED
Hound: Maybe a public transportation project was canceled, making it difficult to get to work!
BUS STOP 
COMING SOON
CLOSED
Hound: But understand: we are ALL making sacrifices! 
Gate 5
Voice: Due to air-traffic cutbacks, this flight is delayed by TWO HOURS. 
Hound: EEP! 
Hound: Excuse me -- I've got to make a call...
Hello...Senator? 
Sequester-based air traffic cutbacks ahve been reversed. First Class may now board. 
Hound: Of course, we'd be crazy not to give ourselves some flexibility! 
Butler: Sir, it's the Defense Department. Your contract's been renewed.
