The graphic at the link is absolutely incredible.  Here's a half'sized preview (go see the full-sized, it's great):

Remember that sequester isn't actually what any of us would call a cut.  It's a slight decrease in the rate of increase of federal spending.  From that link:

Charles Krauthammer: ”The assumption is that somehow at every stage of the expansion of the liberal federal government we have reached a platonic ideal and that if you cut a dollar off that, it’s as if God had devised exactly the size of government America needs and any cut leads to Armageddon.”
