Reason's Sequester Subscription Special: Save 2.3% on a Year's Worth of Reason!

In order to demonstrate the devasatating affects of automatic federal spending cuts, Reason is happy to offer a special Sequestration subscription rate. Depending on how you figure the cuts, the sequester will trim as much as $85 billion out of a $3.6 trillion budget for fiscal year 2013.

You already know how awful the sequester will be. Among its terrifying effects on a country still struggling after spending trillions of borrowed money on bailouts, stimulus, and dysfunctional fighter jets:

In solidarity, we are cruelly slashing 2.3 percent off our normal price of $14.97, which means we will receive 34 cents less per annual subscription. So you can now get a year's worth of Reason - 11 issues - for just $14.63! This rate is good for new subscribers, existing subscribers, and folks who want it via Kindle, Nook, Sony, and other e-readers.

This offer won't last forever - just like the sequester cuts, which the government is likely to reverse as soon as the Dems and Reps can come together in a face-saving, free-spending manner.

So don't delay - and make sure to use this special link to lock in your unconscionably cruel savings of 2.3 percent!

    Austerity never works.

    You'll regret this.

  • Pro Libertate||

    Oh, the austerity!

  • Fist of Etiquette||

    I suppose I'll have to re-up my subscription since being personally featured in the recent issue.

  • C. Anacreon||

    My latest issue's still sitting on the tank waiting for its turn to be opened. Where are you in it? Perhaps I will move it up in the pecking order.

  • itsnotmeitsyou||

    Shouldn't you increase the price and then slash the increases?

  • sarcasmic||

    +1.6

  • Dweebston||

    and then slash modestly trim the increase

    "Slash" sounds much too action verby for sequestration.

  • Koblog||

    The Federal government's budget via the wonder of Baseline Budgeting, automatically increases 7% each year.

    By Federal Logic (a peculiar kind) Reason's price should increase each year by 7%, or from $14.97 to $16.01.

    Thus a 2.3% "slash" of $16.01 will raise the price from $14.97 to $15.66.

    Monocapalypse!!!!!!!

    Re-subscribed thanks to this. I hope you're happy though, Reason. This kind of austerity is going to cause you to have to lay off 85% of your staff and 98% of the commentariat. What will happen then?

  • some guy||

    and 98% of the commentariat. What will happen then?

    You don't want to know what Warty does when he's alone!

  • some guy||

    A "pay cut" is when you get less money for doing the same amount of work. Getting 80% less money for doing 80% less work is not a pay cut. It's a work cut, which is also known as a furlough. And those janitors aren't even getting a furlough.

    But what does it matter. Anyone who believes Obama's words this late in the game is not going to be swayed by definitions or facts.

  • The Late P Brooks||

    98% of the commentariat. What will happen then?

    Virtue is its own reward.

  • Windypundit||

    It's not a real sequester sale unless you threaten to also cut services. I suggest Friday Funnies.

  • some guy||

    Seconded.

  • Jerryskids||

    Since when does a 2.3% cut equal 34 cents? A 2.3% cut obviously equals $4 trillion over the next few eternities.

  • Windypundit||

    Good point, you should always report at least 10-year figures without spelling that out.

  • Proprietist||

    Lest we forget the 170 million jobs that will surely be lost?!

  • 34lbs||

    Wait.. people actually subscribe to the magazine.. i mean it's all here on the internet... no offense reason...
