Sarah Palin has a message for Washington lawmakers regarding the sequester: cut the drama and do your job.

The former Republican vice-presidential candidate laid it all out on her Facebook page Tuesday, imploring members on both sides of the aisle to suck it up and make the necessary moves to get the economy back on track, while warning of dire consequences if such moves are not implemented.

“If we can’t stomach modest cuts that would lower federal spending by a mere 3 percent per year out of a current federal budget of $3.6 trillion,” Palin wrote, “then we might as well signal to the whole world that we have no serious intention of dealing with our debt problem.”

“If we are going to wet our proverbial pants over 3 percent in annual spending cuts when we’re running up trillion dollar annual deficits, then we’re done,” the former Alaska continued.

“Put a fork in us. We’re finished. We’re going to default eventually and that’s why the feds are stockpiling bullets in case of civil unrest.”
