The draconian cuts will occur automatically, although it will also take at least a month for them to have any impact. Of course, the markets are not going to wait that long. For the past two days, the first wave of nail biting started.

  • Our Economic Recovery has been Hijacked Money Morning Chief Investment Strategist Keith Fitz-Gerald joined CNBC Asia's "Squawk Box" program to discuss U.S. President Barack Obama's new jobs proposal. President Obama is in a tough spot, trying to get approval for new tax increases to pay for a $447 billion jobs package -- and Fitz-Gerald said it's unlikely he'll be able to appease Congress enough to get the plan approved. Fitz-Gerald talked to CNBC about how many politicians' personal agendas have impeded U.S. economic recovery, and what should be done to improve economic progress.
