Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.) said he's disappointed in the supercommittee's failure to reach a deal, and he called the looming automatic cuts launched by the sequester "draconian." If the deepest cuts are enacted — about 8 to 9 percent in cuts to annual agency budgets — feds should prepare for the worst, he said.
Defense Secretary Leon Panetta has told DoD he wants it to be ready for a partial audit by 2014. The Senate this week is considering taking that goal and making it law.
