It’s Time For The President To Start Working On A Solution

WASHINGTON – House Republican Conference Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) issued the following statement today after the President Obama’s press conference on the sequester:

“President Obama today said that his sequester cuts are ‘unnecessary’ and ‘inexcusable.’ Republicans could not agree more, which is why the House passed two bills to replace the President’s sequester with smarter spending cuts instead of raising taxes on hardworking Americans. The American people know that spending is the problem, so it is time for the President to stop campaigning for higher taxes and start working on a solution to find more responsible cuts and reforms that will create jobs now and expand opportunities for all Americans in the future.”
