Congressman Chris Collins Comments on the Looming Sequester Cuts

Feb 20, 2013
Press Release

“President Obama proposed these devastating across-the-board spending cuts and insisted they become law.  The House has voted twice to replace the President’s sequester with common sense spending cuts and reforms that help achieve a balanced budget within a decade.  Unfortunately, the Senate and President have never addressed these bills.  Washington’s goal should be to grow the economy, expand opportunity and ensure America maintains its leading role in the world with a strong national defense.  The President needs to come to the table and negotiate a credible plan to replace his sequester with responsible spending cuts and no more tax increases.”
