It's another game of Washington, DC political chicken. This time it is over the sequester, as White House and congressional Republicans work for their opponents to carry most of the blame game if the $85 billion in spending cuts are triggered at the end of this week.
Much of US will soon find out how hard the nation's economy will be hit and our own finances possibly squeezed if those series of deep federal spending cuts, known as the sequester start as planned this Friday.
US states with the largest concentrations of federal agencies and workers, are expected to take the biggest blow.
The Obama administration and members of the GOP have been trading blame for the impending cuts, which would impact nearly every government program and corner of the country. Fasten your seat belts, this time, we may crash and some will surely get burned.
