How incredibly naive. The government takes a dollar from your pocket, filters it through the red-tape machine and a government employee returns to your business to "give" you back 57 cents. It's charitable to call that "non-productive".
We're potentially going to have a recovery (whether robust or not remains to be seen) because of the sequester, not in spite of it. Sequester the Affordable Care Act and just about guarentee a robust recovery.
