Sequester Deadline Approaches



Bookmark and Share

Without a compromise the beginning of dramatic spending cuts will start Friday.

“The President is firm in his conviction that we need to include balance in our deficit reduction. It is unacceptable, it is a my way or the highway approach, to say that revenues shouldn't be part of this,” said Jay Carney, the White House Press Secretary.

Republicans want spending cuts, just not ones that could affect as many people as the sequester would.  

“You're talking about how much, you're asking a question, how much more money do we want to steal from the American people to fund more government? I'm for no more,” said House Speaker Rep. John Boehner.
 
“The President once again goes to raising taxes as the solution. You know, raising taxes isn't the solution that our country needs. We have a spending problem, not a revenue problem,” said Rep. Kristi Noem.  

While republicans say they've done everything they can to avoid this situation, democrats in the senate feel differently.

“This really takes a lot of pizzazz for the House Republicans to say they're waiting for the Democrats to do something. They've done nothing! They've not even allowed Democrats to have a vote on – nothing,” said Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.

Deal or not, some people are frustrated with the lack of solutions coming from their elected officials.  

“It seems like there's never any repercussion when they keep extending the deadline, extending the deadline, raising the debt ceiling where in real life if you kept showing up late for work or if you're a student and you keep handing in your term paper late. There's just no responsibility,” said Paul Gunnarson.   

Again the American people wait to see if congress can prevent major budget cuts that could affect thousands of people.
