God Help Us

Some lawmakers think the sequester is a good thing because it forces the spending cuts they've been yearning for. But the American public? Not so much. In a Gallup poll published March 1, they used words like "bad," "disaster," and "God help us" to describe their views. Additionally, 44 percent said their first response when the sequester took effect was negative. (Photo: Alex Wong/Getty Images)
