During our 11.5 minute discussion, Dr. Fuller defined and explained sequestration, especially in the context of cuts in federal spending for DOD, aerospace and NASA. We talked about the added multiplier impact in the private sector, particularly with prime contractors and small businesses. Dr. Fuller also talked about possible remedies that Congress could take to make sure sequestration does not happen.
