“Here We Go Again”

This article has been published at Huffington Post on 12/6.

************************

Republicans are hoping to find a star for 2016.

It’s still three years before the next Presidential election but already potential candidates are maneuvering for a shot as the party’s top contender.

“Sequestration or Secession?”

Is sequestration a fête accompli?

It’s looking more like it everyday.

We’re facing yet another incomprehensible battle in Congress, another unnecessary deadline which could have grave consequences for the nation and the global economy.

Despite being firmly established in a previous economic battle, sequestration — automatic cuts to the budget, half military and half discretionary — has become a political hot potato with both sides pointing fingers fearful of holding the proverbial spud when the music ends on March One!
