A quarter of hunger-striking prisoners at Guantanamo Bay have abandoned their protest.

For some, worst of sequestration still to come

07/16/13 01:27PM

Sequestration, we've been told, is really no big deal. Just look at the rural rental assistance program: The Obama administration claimed that 15,000 families would lose housing subsidies, many going to poor elderly and disabled tenants who could stand to lose their homes.
