That's "a" way, but it's not the right way.

Sequestering means, by definition, cutting without analysis, cutting without setting priorities, cutting without intelligent thought. It is not the right way to cut military spending any more than it's the right way to cut the rest of government spending.

Unfortunately, we don't seem to have a Congress with the brains, dedication, or moral compass to do the right thing.
