Obama Failure to Comply with Sequestration Transparency Act Shows Bad Faith

President Obama's failure to meet today's deadline for compliance with the Sequestration Transparency Act shows continued bad faith by the Administration in working for a bi-partisan solution to massive defense cuts, according to House Republican Conference Secretary John Carter.

"It is amazing that this President has failed to comply with a law that he just signed last month," says Carter. "The President designed the whole sequester budget cut process in the first place, pushed Congress into approving it on threat of a downgrade in the U.S. credit rating, and promised to work for an alternate budget solution. We have already passed a budget alternative in the House, the President has rejected it, and has now even failed the deadline to simply report how he will enact the cuts if we don't reach a compromise. This is more than a breach of promise; this is a breach of law, which seems to be a hallmark of this Administration."
