Democrats lose sequester battle

Professor Glenn Reynolds reports:
Whatever politicians control, they will use against you to get what they want. The furloughs weren't a reasoned effort to save money: They were an attempt to punish voters for not approving tax increases. If the politicians could have shut down ESPN and blamed insufficient revenue, they would have done that, too. But they don't control ESPN. And, really, there's no reason why they should control the air traffic control system, either. Why not privatize it?
