  On the eve of the March 1st deadline for Congress and President Obama to avoid the across-the-board budget cuts known as sequestration, it became increasingly likely that the cuts would take effect.

But Sen. Johnny Isakson (R-Georgia) thinks the expected complaints from Americans affected by the cuts will force leaders in Washington to reach a solution, and to avoid similar dramas in the future.

 Isakson spoke with WABE's Denis O'Hayer.
