A Washington Fight

Rick Klein: "It's either the worst kind of Washington fight, or the best kind. The stand-off over sequestration's automatic spending cuts is peculiar in part because there's no real attempt to do anything about it. All the focus is falling on who should take the blame after it happens. So it's the worst kind of fight because something big is about to happen, with real consequences for government and military services, that almost nobody in Washington wants to see take place. But it's the best kind of fight because at least this time there's no brinksmanship and almost certainly fruitless late-night, high-stakes meeting."
