US-POLITICS-OBAMA

US President Barack Obama walks off Air Force One at Andrews Air Force Base 26, 2013 in Maryland. Obama painted a devastating picture of looming government budget cuts, at a fabled shipbuilding yard in Virginia that provides the US Navy's nuclear powered aircraft carriers. The trip will intensify the president's effort to hike pressure on Republicans to agree on tax increases to avert $85 billion in automatic spending cuts this year, which experts warn could stagger the fragile economy. The White House said the cuts, known as 'the sequester' which are due to hit on March 1, would see 90,000 civilian defense workers furloughed in Virginia alone and would hurt companies in 50 states that supply shipbuilders.
