Business and political strategist Tara Dowdell joined 92Y American Conversation's Jordan Chariton to discuss the real world impact of the budget sequester. Speaking from the perspective of a small business owner, Dowdell sees "incredibly damaging" results for small business owners among other groups.
"I don't hire people because government spending's been cut, I don't hire people because you give me a tax cut. The reason why I hire is because I got to the point where I could not do my job on my own alone anymore...demand is why people hire."
Do you agree with Tara that the sequester will harm the economy? Leave a comment.
