Now that the sequester is upon us, let us put to good use by:
1. Stopping subsidies to agribusinesses, including corn for ethanol.
2. Stopping subsidies to oil and gas companies.
3. Stopping subsidies to big pharma in all forms.
4. Make it mandatory for able-bodied recipients for Medi-Cal and applicants for disability services to work for a living, cleaning public property, working with law enforcement in groups to monitor citizens' safety with dignity, in return for benefits.
