Oh, the humanity!
The National Drug Intelligence Center, shut down last June, will be shut down???!!! These cuts are so bad, they’re affecting America retroactively!
Yep! All it takes is a little compromise, according to President Practical. He’s so practical, in fact, that he’ll be traveling to Newport News, Virginia, tomorrow, to address the sequester head-on:

What is cheap? Obama’s talk.
