Speaker Boehner Statement on the President’s Sequester


Feb 5, 2013

Washington
- House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) issued the following statement today regarding the upcoming sequestration cuts:

“President Obama first proposed the sequester and insisted it become law.  Republicans have twice voted to replace these arbitrary cuts with common-sense cuts and reforms that protect our national defense.  We believe there is a better way to reduce the deficit, but Americans do not support sacrificing real spending cuts for more tax hikes.  The president’s sequester should be replaced with spending cuts and reforms that will start us on the path to balancing the budget in 10 years.”
