Sequestration Press Call with Rep Deutch and Lt Gen Kerrick

By Stephanie Dreyer | 9.14.12

Congress is in the midst of debating how to deal with the pending defense cuts. Although the President has delivered a balanced plan that would avoid Sequestration, Congressional Republicans have refused to negotiate.

The White House is scheduled to deliver its Sequestration report to Congress today. In advance, Congressman Ted Deutch (D-FL) and Lt. Gen. Don Kerrick discussed on a call today how Congress can move forward to create a bipartisan, balanced approach to preserving our military capabilities and avoid tackling the deficit solely on the backs of the middleclass.
