Democrat, Republican Sequester Agreement: Will It Ever Happen? (CARTOON)

democrat republic sequester

Time is ticking as the March 1 sequester deadline looms, and it seems the government keeps getting closer to imposing $85 bilion in across-the-board spending cuts.

Republicans and Democrats have had issues on several policies in the past, and sequestration seems no different as the two parties can't come to an agreement.

Sequestration can have a serious impact on Americans' lives, and could have a particularly harmful affect on people of color, and as the deadline gets closer, it seems like a ticking time bomb.

At least that's what cartoonist Kevin Eason thinks, illustrating how the parties are wasting time arguing and pointing fingers as time winds down.

What do you think? Will the Republicans and Democrats ever come to an agreement before the deadline? Can they stop pointing fingers and achieve progress? Share your thoughts in the comments section below.
