With about a week to go until the previously agreed-upon budget cuts called the sequester, some Republicans and virtually all Democrats in Washington are searching for a new agreement that will avoid those budget cuts and replace them with either fewer cuts, some tax increases, or nothing at all. Even though most of the people desperately searching for a solution to the sequester voted for it a little over a year ago, they now find it terribly flawed and in great need of improvement. In fact, Congress and the president are so concerned about avoiding the sequester that they are taking this week off for President’s Day.
