SOTU Sneak Peek

By State of the Union Intern Vaughn Hillyard

There is no shortage of stories dominating the news this week, but what will be leading the headlines on Sunday morning?

With one week away from the sequester deadline – or what we prefer to call the start of automatic spending cuts – we’ll look into what we should expect for the week ahead on Capitol Hill. And particularly, if March 1 passes without a deal, is the country truly in for a crisis situation? Or is Congress trying to compete with Lincoln for Sunday night’s Oscars?

There’s little activity around the Capitol, this week. Congress is on recess, leaving the visitor center staff, the interns and us on hand.
