We are hours away from forced spending cuts that could have wide-ranging impact on services that millions of us use, but lawmakers have yet to act.

Melisa Raney tells us about three cuts that will impact many American families.

The victims of Hurriccane Sandy, trying to rebuild their homes and communities, wn't have the funding they need to do it.

According to the Housing and Urban Development sectretary,  about $3-billion has been cut from a supplemental bill for repair and recovery.

If the spending cuts go into effect, some preschoolers may have to stay home.

About $400-million in proposed cuts, means nearly 70,000 children from low-income families won't be able to enroll in pre-schools and daycare centers run by Head Start.

And your visit to some of America's national parks will also likely be affected.

The National Park Service could lose $110-million from its budget.

The Great Smoky Mountains National Park plans to close five of its campgrounds and picnic areas.

Congress still has time to keep these cuts from happening.

Republicans say Democrats aren't coming to the table.

"We are still ready to work with them to get something responsible passed but we can't do it alone," says Sen. Mitch McConnell, Republican Minority Leader.

While Democrats say Republicans must do their part.

"Compromise is never easy, but surely it is better than doing nothing at all," says Sen. Harry Reid, Democratic Majority Leader.

President Barack Obama is hoping the public will put pressure on lawmakers.

"The public is beginning to pay attention to this. And one thing I'm certain about is that the country as a whole is weary of Washington presiding over a manufactured crisis every three months," says the President.

Some 45 percent of those questioned in a Pew Research Center/Washington Post Survey say Republicans should take more blame if the spending cuts take effect.

And 32 percent say they'd place blame on the President.

But 13 percent say both sides should get equal blame.
