What is sequestration?

October 20, 2012
Daily Press

EDITOR:

When the last "national debt ceiling" vote was to come up before Congress, Obama insisted that sequestration was to be added to the bill or he would not sign it. What I want to know is, "Who in the House of Representatives vote for this bill?" On TV for the last two days, I have seen several representatives speak out on this issue. They are saying now that they have passed several different bills to cancel this portion of the bill, but Sen. Reid has tabled everything they send to the Senate. Why did they vote for it in the first place? What is sequestration? It is the part of the bill that says we are to cut our military by a half of trillion dollars in January of 2013. We have already cut our military by $4 billion and this will put our ground forces down to the same level as we had before World War II. Our Navy will be downgraded and several ships in production have already been cancelled. Our nuclear capacity will be cut down to 300 nuclear weapons - to make us more in line with China. We will no longer have nuclear superiority in the world. We will concede that to Russia. We have $16 trillion in national debt and it is expected to rise to over $20 trillion if Obama is re-elected. Will you vote for sequestration? If you want an end to America as we know it - Vote for Obama!
