What Federal Budget Sequestration Will Mean for Child Care and Head Start

On March 1, 2013, across-the-board cuts to federal discretionary spending, known as "sequestration," are scheduled to take effect. These cuts will affect a broad range of programs that are vital to women and their families. Two of those programs are the Child Care and Development Block Grant (CCDBG) and Head Start. Click on a state in the map below to see what the estimated impact of sequestration will be on these two programs.* For more information about sequestration and budget negotiations see our Federal Budget Roadmap.

*Analysis by CLASP. The totals for each state are based on per-child costs estimated from the Harkin sequester report and the CBPP estimate of a 5.1 percent non-defense discretionary sequester cut.

Why do republicans hate every body? Does any one really think the party of stupid can change and wise up?

You cannot currently send a star to Giana because you have done so within the last week.
You cannot currently send a star to Autumn because you have done so within the last week.
You are welcome Magdika and Ro
You cannot currently send a star to Jason because you have done so within the last week.
You cannot currently send a star to Theodore because you have done so within the last week.--you're probably right even though economists around the world agree such austerity will harm our economy and possibly restart a new recession.

I believe the party of "know nothing" is having their second term with an incompetent president. Sequestration should never happen. It will affect many areas of our homeland security. This is at Obama's feet. Let's see what "Mr. President Leading From Behind" will do. Sequestration will have a miniscule effect on our debt.

Obama is not a military man. My guess is that he was never interested not for a nano second to join the military and do his part for his country. Why? I don't think Obama feels that American is HIS country. He seems more aligned with the middle east based on his "limp wrist" approach to their trek towards nuclear weapons. As a young man, he appears to have been greatly influenced by living in Indonesia, as an Indonesian citizen dropping on his prayer mat when the bell went off chanting and saying his Muslim prayers and learning not the easy Koran but the hard Koran. What a very confused young man he was and as an adult I can't believe that Obama is proud to be an American. Read Obama's book "Dreams From My Father" because in Obama's own words he tells you how he feels about America, his white mother, and he will tell you all of this while making some of the most racist comments you'll ever read.

Republicans read his books.

The topic is impact of sequestration on children's programs, cuts which the GOP insisted on. Please ensure future comments posted relate to the article.

That's a perspective that seems to fit the evidence Kit.
