Rep. Billy Long, R-Mo., said in a radio interview Monday that voters in his district not only can’t get enough of the sequester, they want more of it, reports Salon.com
“The people that I’ve talked to seem to be doing well,” Long told KOLR10 News.
“In fact, when I go out in restaurants here in town, people come up to me. They want to see more sequestration, not less.”
“So I think that’s different than it could be in some parts of the country, but we haven’t seen any measurable effect here at all,” Long said.
Long’s constituents are not alone.
According to a new poll from CBS News, 69 percent of Americans don’t believe the sequester has impacted them.
