"Leadership has determined that avoiding the possibility of a government shutdown fight during the lame duck session is necessary in order to properly address the threat of sequestration and all the other elements of the "fiscal cliff.' Given sequestration's devastating impact on defense and especially non-defense functions of the federal government, I am encouraged that our leaders are planning to address this very serious problem before January. It is essential that discretionary spending not bear the brunt of additional cuts when the true drivers of our deficit spending are mandatory spending and a lack of revenues."
