      The sequester and federal workers

      On Tuesday, President Obama asked Congress for a short-term deficit reduction package of spending cuts and tax revenue. It would delay the effective date of the sequester -- a series of automatic cuts scheduled to kick in on March first.

      Francis Rose, host of "In Depth with Francis Rose" on Federal News Radio, discussed sequestration (and its potential impact on the federal workforce) with Capital Insider.
