Budget cuts threaten to derail recovery
Placeholder Image
Congress will decide this week whether the U.S. government will stay in business, when it votes on Friday to keep the doors open or shutter them amid budget fights. At issue are $33 billion in cuts, including $10 billion already passed, what would be the largest one-time budget reduction in U.S. history. Republicans have called for more, passing a measure nearly double that.
