This week on the Friday Roundtable, our panelists will discuss politics and the political calculations that each side is making on sequestration. Who blinks first? Which party bears the scars of the battle over automatic cuts? What should you--the American citizen and voter--know about this as it goes on?

They'll also look at how the state revenue forecast might impact the budget discussions at the state Capitol, and examine what the future holds for Minnesota Republicans.
