“The spending cuts, also known as the “sequester,” are a direct result of a long push by conservatives to take the nation’s economy hostage in order to secure massive, harmful spending cuts.” These cuts will devastate our economy and could put us into another recession. Instead of working together to fix the problem, members of Congress are busy trying to position themselves to not take the blame for the fall.
