Washington Week

Sequestration Deadline and Voters Right Act

We look at why the White House and Congress could not reach a deal to avoid the sequester before the March 1 deadline.  Plus, the potential economic impact of mandatory federal spending cuts.  Also, we analyze the Supreme Court case that challenges a key part of the Voting Rights Act of 1965. Joining Gwen: Joan Biskupic, Reuters; Gloria Borger, CNN; and David Wessel, Wall Street Journal.
