Uiding the government to a solution for sequestering budget cuts using philosophical ideas and practical realities

As many of you are aware, the sequestration of budget cuts has gone into effect. Many people fear massive cuts and lay offs. Others say, although drastic, we must cut the budget. The government seems to be stuck, and unable to find a way out of this situation.

For your second essay, chose one or two philosophers(John Steward Mill, Emmanuel Kant, Thomas Hobbes, or Ayn Rand)whom we have studied, as guides for the government to find a solution to sequestration. Let them argue the specifics of a solution. Utilize both philosophic ideas, and practical realities in your essay.
