We are four days until the March 1 cuts kick in and Washington is still in the sequester standoff. The polls are showing the majority of Americans are not in favor of what is about to happen.

According to a new Bloomberg News poll, 54% are in favor of postponing the sequester and allowing the economy more time to recover. While, 40% of those surveyed are in favor of the debate, saying that Congress should make the cuts now to combat the federal budget deficit.

So with the House and Senate finally back from their vacation could we actually see an agreement before Friday? Or should we finally start to get worried? Newsweek Daily Beast Global Business Editor Dan Gross joins the conversation to help us answer those questions and more about the sequester. See you at 3 p.m.
