To the Editor,
‘Sequester Squirm’ The government is trying to squirm out of the “sequestration” deal they signed, so they can keep over-spending our money.
Harry Reid and the rest of the democratic Congress agreed in 2011 to the sequestration of $1.2 trillion in spending cuts in order to get the debt ceiling raised. Well, the debt ceiling was raised but now they do not want to follow through on the budget cuts they agreed to. We are facing the raising of the debt ceiling again this year but Congress has not stuck to their agreement for spending cuts from the last raising of the debt ceiling.
This cannot continue. I urge you to call or write your Congressman and tell them to stick with the sequester deal and cut out of control spending now.
