In estimating the impacts on economic activity and employment from undoing these spending caps, we assume that the composition of discretionary spending is essentially unchanged by shifts in the level of spending. It is theoretically true that cuts to infrastructure spending could be less or more steep than overall spending cuts, but this is nearly impossible to forecast. Further, the discretionary spending cuts currently constituting the policy baseline in the United States (., the budget “sequester”) are across-the-board cuts to every category of discretionary spending, making the assumption that the composition of discretionary spending cuts will be unaffected by the level in fact consistent with current budget law.
The euphoric state that occurs when opium is smoked can lead to adverse complications, poor behaviors and potentially serious consequences. Opium will slow the heart rate and cause labored breathing which can lead to a lack of oxygen in the body. The lack of oxygen can cause the user to pass out, go into a coma or potentially die if the body does not receive enough air to sustain itself. Additional short term effects associated with a lack of oxygen include damage to the blood vessels, brain and other organs as toxins from the lack of oxygen and the opium itself build up within the system.
