Krauthammer’s Take: Failure to Act on Sequester is ‘Forfeiting by Congress of its Constitutional Duties’

He emphasized that this is a failure by the Senate, which is controlled by the Democrats, rather than the House, where Republicans have proposed legislation that would replace the sequester with alternative spending cuts.
