    that the sequester cuts were front-loaded heavily against the D side of the table the first year.

    i don't think it's far-fetched at all to think that shutdown/default was planned for exactly this date.  They would get their desired side of the sequester for a year, then pull the shutdown default stunt to retrade the whole deal--thrown in some Obamacare defunding for principled kicks--just before their side of the sequester bargain became effective.
