Van Hollen Applauds President's Call to Address the Sequester


Location: Washington, DC

Today Maryland Congressman Chris Van Hollen issued the following statement on President Obama's call to replace the sequester:

"As the President made clear today, Congress must address the sequester. If it cannot do so as part of a large, balanced deficit reduction package, we must pass a short-term plan to replace these deep, indiscriminate cuts. House Democrats offered a balanced plan today that would have saved American jobs and replaced the sequester for this year. House Republicans would not even allow a vote on the House Floor on the plan, instead pushing a bill that fails to address any of our looming fiscal challenges. It's time for real solutions, not budget gimmicks."
