U.S. Senator Scott Brown (R-MA) issued the following statement on the sequestration report issued by the Office of Management and Budget today:
"There is no question that Washington isn't working for the American people and today's report released by the White House confirms that. This is unacceptable.
"The report shows what we already knew; Massachusetts jobs will be hit hard. It puts our national security at risk and is a threat to our job creators. Until the leaders in Washington start working together on legislation that improves the economy, addresses our debt and deficit, and creates jobs, rather than placing the needs of their political party ahead of the country, we will continue to get news like we did today. When the party leaders step aside and allow us to work in a bipartisan manner, we can get things done."
