This is not what I signed up for.

About a month ago, I accepted a job with the federal government. The salary was mutually understood to be at the GS-12 level. I just got a call that the job will now be at the GS-9 level due to fiscal cliff issues. What do I do now?
This is especially frustrating since I had declined other job offers (at salaries comparable to the GS-12 level) to accept this one, and I was assured that the fiscal cliff situation was not going to be an issue.
I'm not looking forward to restarting the job hunt again. Should I still take the job? Or should I look elsewhere?
