Sequestration to hit Nebraska|
First there was the "fiscal cliff" and now the sequester. Nebraska US Senator Mike Johanns says cuts in federal spending will start at midnight if this stand-off doesn't end. Senator Johanns says the two-and-a-half percent, give or take, is just a drop in the bucket when it comes to fixing the country's spending issues. This will not solve our budget problems. Johanns believes that one of the reasons this country is facing the sequester deadline is that the Senate has failed to pass a budget for many years.
