George Allen today released the following statement regarding Congress' bipartisan vote requiring the Obama Administration to outline defense cut details:
"I commend Democrats and Republicans in Congress for requiring a detailed account of the looming cuts that disproportionately target our military," said George Allen. "The Obama Administration owes the people of Virginia a transparent plan of how they would make these devastating cuts. I opposed this deal from the beginning because it takes half the cuts from our nation's paramount responsibility of national defense, potentially devastating our military, families and jobs in Virginia. Leadership is about setting priorities, and I urge Congress to act swiftly to reverse these cuts that are placing over 200,000 Virginia jobs, our national security and our military men and women at risk."
