Federal Budget Cuts Could Be Coming

Start bracing for sequestration. That’s what Senator Chuck Grassley tells KNIA/KRLS News. The across-the-board cuts are set to take effect on March 1st, with half hitting defense and half hitting non-defense items. Grassley says he doesn’t necessarily thing the sequester cuts are the right ways to cut spending, but says it’s a better alternative than growing the deficit. He says the president needs to sit down with Congress and negotiate if he wants to compromise.
