Playing Chicken

While Washington lawmakers play a dangerous game of chicken over the sequester set to take place on March 1, Americans are divided about whether the automatic spending cuts to domestic programs and the defense budget should happen. In a Pew Research Center/USA Today survey released Feb. 20, 40 percent said they should, while 49 percent said they should be delayed. If no deal is reached, 49 percent would blame congressional Republicans.
