I fear that the Reps will cave to some increased revenue (read taxes) to protect DOD. There will be some accounting gimmicks used as well to postpone any cuts to the out years. Neither party wants any real spending cuts. We are screwed.
I think we’re singing from the same hymnal.
However, the only way I see the sequester getting axed is the same faction(s) joining forces from the Tax/Debt ceiling debacle.
The sequester goes away only if the GOP-E & the Dems ostracize the Tea Party House members.
