GOP will get most blame on sequester

Though much of the public is still tuned out of the sequester debate, 49 percent said they would blame Republicans in Congress if the automatic spending cuts happen, while 31 percent would blame President Obama, according to a new survey from the Pew Research Center and USA Today. Also, 49 percent said they would rather see the cuts delayed, while 40 percent said they would prefer having the cuts go into effect rather than delaying them again. Just 19 percent want a deal that includes no tax increases, as the GOP wants, while 76 percent want the deal to include both tax hikes and spending cuts, as Obama wants.
