There's a little more than a month to go until sequestration kicks in, taking more than a $1 trillion from agency budgets over 10 years unless Congress finds a way to agree on a Plan B for deficit reduction.

In this week's edition of On DoD, Jared Serbu, Federal News Radio's DoD reporter, talks with several defense experts about sequestration and the Defense budget in a second term under President Obama:

  • Todd Harrison, a senior fellow at the Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments

  • Tom Donnelly, resident sellow at the American Enterprise Insitute and Co-Director of AEI's Marilyn Ware Center for Security Studies

  • Russell Rumbaugh, a senior associate at the Stimson Center, director of Stimson's budgeting for foreign affairs and defense program and a former defense analyst for the Senate Budget Committee.
