Sequester Takes Uneven Bite From Agency Budgets

For nearly a year, research leaders have been warning that the 5% budget cut known as the sequester would have dire consequences for research. But as the end of the 2013 fiscal year approaches on 30 September, it appears that—in many cases—the bark was worse than the bite. Still, scientists remain very worried about the future, as political wrangling makes it unlikely that Congress will undo cuts any time soon.

Republicans HATE progress in America … otherwise they would promote it, rather than imped it.  That’s OK, foreign nations will reward them.
