(BOISE, ID) — U.S. congressmen Mike Crapo and Mike Simpson were in Boise Tuesday to discuss the looming fiscal deadline known as the sequester. Neither lawmaker was confident that Congress could work in a bipartisan way to avoid the $85 billion cut to federal programs and agencies. Both men are supporting the Simpson-Bowles plan, which they say would reduce the deficit by $2.4 trillion over the next decade. Crapo says the fiscal decisions Congress will make over the next 100 days will be very difficult.
