Calling Congress to Action
President Obama and Democrats agree: America cannot afford more Republican obstruction and delay. The stakes are too high and time is running too short. Inaction will simply leave the indiscriminate, across-the-board spending cuts in place -- threatening jobs, undermining public safety and first responders, injecting uncertainty into our markets, and harming our economy.
Democrats are interested in solutions, not sequesters. We have laid out a balanced approach built on responsible spending cuts, increased revenues, and growth with jobs. The House should be in session this week to consider this proposal.
The last thing we should do is nothing. The clock is ticking and the deadline is fast approaching. Congress should work together to replace the sequester with a bold and balanced proposal that will strengthen the middle class, create jobs, expand our economy, and responsibly bring down the deficit.
Congress on Your Corner
Join the Office of Congresswoman Pelosi for a "Congress on Your Corner" at the San Francisco War Memorial Veterans Building.
