In his first WisconsinEye interview since taking office as Wisconsin's 2nd District Congressman seven weeks ago, U.S. Rep. Mark Pocan listed the six frustrating things he has learned about Washington and how it works. The Democrat also predicted that $1 trillion in March 1 domestic and military budget spending cuts -- a process called "sequestration" -- will happen, despite the efforts of he and members of both parties to avoid it. He also explained why he is a member of a new, informal social group made up of 42 Democratic and Republican House members trying to get to know each other personally.
