The Sequester It's looking less likely that a deal will be reached in Washington to avoid deep across-the-board spending cuts, known as the sequester, that neither of the nation's major political parties say they want. There's a lot of blame and little compromise on a better way to cut the deficit. Monday on the Sound of Ideas, we'll talk about how these spending cuts are likely to affect you. Join host Mike McIntyre Monday at 9 on 90.3.
