1. It's no longer chaotic when it gets predictable. It's a game both sides are playing to appease Wall

St. that loves the Sequester/Slowdown because it means the Federal Gov't is spending and regulating less, which is what they demanded to begin with. A federal default on the Debt would be something else, so that won't happen.

Sequester and partial shutdowns are Austerity by means other than the normal political process which would ordinarily require that the pols in both parties vote on it - a vote on the record for austerity is something that neither party really wants. So, everyone plays this game instead.
