Editor,It is very disappointing that the Utah Republican and Democratic politicians elected into office by Utah citizens have decided to follow their party leaders and allow the sequestration to hit on March 1. I'm sure they realize several thousand Utahns are going to be severely affected by this. Hill AFB employees have been told that we will probably lose up to 20 percent of our paychecks for 22 weeks. Boehner, Pelosi, Reid, and McConnell didn't elect them into office, we did. I heard at least one of the Utah politicians latest words that he was disappointed that the sequestration is going to happen. So why doesn't he go face to face with Boehner and the rest of the party to make sure it doesn't happen? Why did the House and Senate take a whole week off instead of sitting down to take care of the problem?
