McConnell Says Automatic Cuts Will Happen

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) predicted that automatic spending cuts will take effect on March 1 as scheduled, Reuters reports.

Said McConnell: "It's pretty clear to me that the sequester's going to go into effect. I have seen no evidence that the House plans to act on this matter before the end of the month."

He added: "Read my lips: I'm not interested in an 11th-hour negotiation."
