Charles Clark outlined the domestic programs that would be cut if sequestration and the “fiscal cliff” occured at the end of 2012. Topics included the potential impact of the cuts to various federal departments and programs, as well as what programs are exempt. He also responded to telephone calls and electronic communications.

“Fiscal cliff” referred to the impending tax increases and sequestration budget cuts at the end of 2012 if Congress failed to reach a new budget agreement. "Sequestration," a legal procedure in which automatic budget cuts are triggered, was agreed to in the Budget Control Act of 2011.

This program was part of a “Washington Journal” series looking at specific policy areas of the “fiscal cliff.”

Nancy Calo read news headlines from C-SPAN Radio at the end of the program. close
