5 Ways The Coming Sequester Could Make You Sick   Leave a comment

There’s a great analysis over at Think Progress of some of the possibilities that could occur if the coming sequester of automatic budget cuts are allowed to take place beginning on March 1st…now, the reason the sequester was agreed to last year was to try to force Congressional lawmakers into reaching some sort of long-term deal to reduce the country’s deficit and begin reining in the country’s debt. If the sequester cuts take place, here are 5 ways they could adversely affect the health of Americans….

  • Americans could face an increased risk of foodborne illnesses
  • Researchers would be forced to delay life-saving treatment research
  • Fewer Americans would be able to receive health coverage under Obamacare
  • Americans with mental health problems could receive less treatment
  • Fewer Americans would be screened and tested for HIV

Considering all that could happen if the sequester takes effect, let’s hope Congress somehow comes to their senses and doesn’t let the automatic cuts contained within the sequester take effect…
