GOP seeks to smooth roughest cuts, avert shutdown

In this March 4, 2013, photo, the U.S. Capitol is seen at sunrise in Washington. Republicans controlling the House are moving to take the roughest edges off of across-the-board spending cuts that are just starting to take effect. Even as the military would bear a $43 billion cut over just seven months, the new GOP measure released Monday would give the Pentagon much-needed funding for readiness. It would also ease the pain felt by critical agencies like the FBI and the Border Patrol. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite)
