The Pessimistic Supercommittee Take
by

Yuval Levin doesn’t think that avoiding the Budget Control Act sequester will be so easy. He notes that both the president and Congress will have to draw up budgets for Fiscal Year 2013 in early 2012, and thus will be forced to contemplate the prospect of the sequester (although presumably Senate Democrats will avoid this problem, since they never introduce budgets anyways). That will raise some tough choices for Republicans, who don’t want to let the sequester slash the defense budget or to give Obama an opportunity for demagoguery by proposing trillions in spending cuts.
