Sequester that

By From page A5 | April 03, 2013

EDITOR:

The Mountain Democrat’s editorial of March 25, “Sequester this,” suggests sequestering reparation payments to minority and women farmers who were unjustly denied loans decades ago and, for good measure, cutting off telephone subsidies to poor Americans. I have one more suggestion: sequester the postal subsidy that allows junk mailers and newspapers like the Mountain Democrat to use the public mail for a fraction of what it costs the post office. Let’s have the MD preach by example.
