The White House is out tonight with a detailed look at what it says will be the damage done to each state when sequestration - big, indiscriminate budget cuts - begin later this week. Administration officials laid out the details in a conference call Sunday. Not to be outdone, Michael Steel, the spokesman for House Speaker John Boehner, released this statement: 

"Republicans in the House have voted - twice - to replace President Obama's sequester with smarter spending cuts. The White House needs to spend less time explaining to the press how bad the sequester will be and more time actually working to stop it."
