Senators Vow to Avert Sequestration Cuts
September 26, 2012
Six senators are vowing to work across party lines to head off stiff automatic budgets cuts set to take effect in January.
“We are committed to working together to help forge a balanced, bipartisan deficit reduction package to avoid damage to our national security, important domestic priorities, and our economy,” Sens. Carl Levin, D-Mich., John McCain, R-Ariz. and four other lawmakers wrote in a Sept. 21 letter to Senate leaders. “All ideas should be put on the table and considered.”
The letter was made public this week.
