This sequester concerns meMorro Bay
Scott C. Presnal
I am really concerned about the impacts of our own government’s cuts known as sequesters, when it comes to the Republicans and the Democrats. First of all, the FAA, Federal Aviation Administration, had close to a 150-closure list of staff at local airports and control towers. Take, for example, in Ohio County of West Virginia and the historic city of Wheeling (where my best friend forever Jenny Mackey lives); that city airport will lose staff and money to keep the control tower open for travelers.
Second, it’s cutting millions of dollars from the NOAA or National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration for the GEO weather satellites for the years of 2015 and 2017, for forecasting hurricanes, severe weather, and other needs that go along with weather forecasting and warning people what dangers are coming.
Third, cutting special education by giving pink slips to teachers who have students in school with the learning disabilities of autism and Down Syndrome should not even happen when there is a rise in children with autism during these last years.
In closing, can our United States government learn the lessons the hard way like California has when it comes to a budget? The answer should be coming with enough patience to deal with it.
