Web Extra: Sequester analysis with Dr. Jeff Stein

Posted: Updated:

 KSFY Political Analyst Dr. Jeff Stein says he fully expects the deadline for the Sequester to come and go with no type of agreement in place; neither a short-term "kick the can down the road" agreement or a long-term agreement which would actually set in place a plan to fix the federal budget.

 Stein says neither Republicans nor Democrats have the stomach to negotiate with other nor compromise on this issue.

 One of the main factors in play: Republicans want financial reform for some federal entitlement programs, while the Obama Administration says any agreement must also include some type of revenue increase in the form of new taxes.
