Palazzo on Looming Defense Cuts: "It's Morally Irresponsible"

Statement

Location: Washington, DC

At a House Armed Services Committee hearing today with members of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Congressman Steven Palazzo (R-MS) spoke out about the dangers of the looming defense cuts that threaten to slash military budgets by a trillion dollars:

"At the end of the day I think it's morally irresponsible," Palazzo stated. "And it's been said in this room, and I think its been said and paraphrased by the Chairman: it's morally irresponsible to try to balance the financial woes and our bank account on the backs of our men and women in uniforms and their families. I'm praying that we'll be able to put this behind us, find a way to avert sequestration but also to get our spending under control in this country."
