Who is Winning the Sequester Wars

“Republicans are winning the sequester fight, writes Politico. Federal employees have so far taken no furlough days and the stock market hit an all-time record earlier this month. Amid all that, it’s pretty hard for most of the public to understand what the Democrats were talking about, with all their gloom-and-doom chatter earlier this year. The big question: Can the GOP maintain the political high ground?” BUT WAIT Politico also examines Democratic strategy, in a second story. “Democrats aren’t dropping the threat of disaster, seizing now on the line they think can beat the Republicans: law and order,” he writes. “Prison riots, cocaine flooding the streets, terrorists on board airplanes – even hurricanes and tornadoes left undetected by budget-slashed agencies – have moved front and center as Democrats try to get the public behind blaming the Republicans.”
