Here's just a quick summary of recent headlines:

The article that started it all is the WSJ Editorial Page's interview with House Speaker John Boehner. (Subscription may be required.)

Gov Exec: Once unthinkable, severe spending cuts now seem plausible.

Politico:  Washington, D.C.-area lawmakers brace for sequestration

The Hill: Boehner takes flak from Republican defense hawks on sequester stance
