Despite repeated efforts by the House to work together on preventing the sequester, the White House continues ignore the reality of this looming problem.
Today, the White House announced that it will not support the National Security & Job Protection Act.
Majority Leader Eric Cantor made the following statement:
While our national security, the future of our military, and millions of jobs hang in the balance, the Obama Administration’s opposition to the National Security and Job Protection Act demonstrates that its only plan is to make excuses for its own inaction on averting the sequester.
The House has approved a plan to protect our troops, jobs and our homeland. We have repeatedly asked the White House to work with us to replace the sequester, meet us halfway or to present a plan. Instead, the White House has failed to take any reasonable and responsible steps to avoid this grave threat to the future of our nation.
