    The tax brinkmanship at the end of the year was going to hurt everyone with a paycheck if they didn't find a solution.

    But the sequester will hurt somewhat selectively. I am not sure all the dire consequences predicted will actually happen, or not right away.

    It is just crazy that we are having this political show. Underneath it though is a serious and intractable problem: we have two parties that have radically different ideas of what the proper level of Federal spending should be. And together they are supposed to approve a budget, set a debt limit, and enact tax policy.
