Americans Need More Than a "Road Show' President

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (CA-23) gave the following remarks on sequestration as the President continues down the campaign trail:

"We roughly borrow $85 billion every 28 days. So what we are looking to do is cut less than what we borrow in one month - not what we spend but what we borrow."

"As the other leaders have said, the President's only idea to solve a problem is to take more from the hardworking taxpayers. Let's put the sequester into perspective. It is $85 billion. We have a spending problem in Washington. We borrow more than a trillion dollars a year. We roughly borrow $85 billion every 28 days. So what we are looking to do is cut less than what we borrow in one month - not what we spend but what we borrow. This is not time for a road show President but this is a time to look for someone who will lead and work with us because we are willing to work with them to solve America's problems."
