Massive U.S. government spending cuts and tax hikes due next year will cause even worse economic damage than previously thought if Washington fails to come up with a solution, the Congressional Budget Office warned on Wednesday.

If "massive" cuts in government spending can cause a recession, I'd argue that the government is spending too much to begin with and is far too involved in our economy that it should be.
