Sequester Fever... Catch It!

February 28, 2013

With the sequestration deadline nearing closer and closer, late-night hosts tried to explain the budget cuts and the affects it will have on Americans. The Tonight Show’s graphics team put together a musical version of the sequestration negotiations and host Jay Leno used the opportunity to get another Carnival Cruise metaphor into his monologue. Late Night's Jimmy Fallon combined some of the jobs that will be affected by the cuts in his show.

Over on the Late Show, David Letterman went far afield in explaining how the cuts will affect Supreme Court justices. He also opened his monologue by listing the budget mini-crises the government has experiences since the election in November.

Fast forward to 4:00 to see Fallon explain who has the most to lose from the sequester.
