The Democratic national chairwoman, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., has stated on record that her staffers are having a hard time "affording a good meal" in Washington because of the sequester taking place. She must be talking about her lowest paid staffers who only make $60,000 per year. She must not be talking about the ones who make as much as $160,000 per year. Either way, I am sure every American feels badly about this and we should all send donations her way to make sure her staff can afford to go out for dinner.

The real scary part is how this woman, who is the spokesperson for Democratic National Committee, sees the sequester effecting her. Scary.
