(RNN) - Sequestration is the across-the-board trim to reduce the federal deficit by $1.2 trillion in the next decade. If Congress takes no action, the spending cuts will begin Friday.
So why the couldn't-care-less attitude?
Many have taken to social media for varying reasons — from the expectation that another political quarrel will eventually end in a deal, to media hype, to some really not knowing what it is.
Still others said they're not paying much attention because they don't believe they're going to be financially impacted. But one thing everyone seems to have in common is anger about the ongoing Capitol Hill blame game.
Only a quarter of the country has heard "a lot" about the looming sequestration cuts, according to a survey released by the Pew Research Center. More claimed to know "nothing at all."
The web site Buzzfeedpublished a story Monday stating readers have ignored the latest crisis, using its own website traffic as proof.
Buzzfeed called the word sequester a "headline killer, an unintelligible piece of congressional jargon that begs even the most politically savvy readers to keep scrolling when they encounter it."
So instead they're trying more clickable substitutes, such as "spendocalypse."
The effects won't be seen March 1. However, they will become visible in the weeks and months that follow it if the Democrats and Republicans can't reach a compromise.
