Not North Carolina 11th District U.S. Rep. Mark Meadows, according to the latest issue of Bloomberg Businessweek.

As Congress prepares for yet another standoff this fall over raising the U.S. debt ceiling and writing the 2014 federal budget, [House Speaker John] Boehner and other GOP leaders say they still hope for a deal to end the [sequestration-related] cuts, which House Majority Leader Eric Cantor of Virginia has called “harmful.” But a small group of House conservatives, new to Washington and aligned with the Tea Party, argue the sequester has been good for the economy. They want to leave it in place to keep slimming down the government. “I think the cuts are helping us,” says Representative Mark Meadows, a freshman from North Carolina.

By helping lower the federal budget deficit, Meadows says, the sequester gives businesses confidence that Congress is “serious about getting our fiscal house in order,” which he argues will lead to sustained economic growth.

It’s just the latest example of the argument that sequestration generates positive unintended consequences.
