Spending Cuts Round I_Rich.jpg

FILE - This Aug. 1, 2013 file photo shows Senate Appropriations Committee Chair Sen. Barbara Mikulski, D-Md., flanked by Senate Majority Whip Richard Durbin of Ill., left, and Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., speaking on Capitol Hill in Washington. The first year of automatic, across-the-board budget cuts didn�t live up to the dire predictions of those who warned of sweeping furloughs and big disruptions of government services, but the second round just might. �They squeezed everything to get through the first year thinking we would come to our senses,� said Barbara Mikulski, D-Md., of agency budget chiefs.
