Kirkpatrick: Sequestration will hurt Grand Canyon, schools, tribes


Location: Washington, DC

This morning, U.S. Representative Ann Kirkpatrick, D-Ariz., gave a 5-minute speech on the House floor about the need to prevent reckless sequestration cuts that will harm Arizona's District One and our nation. Kirkpatrick cited concerns about the impact on national parks such as the Grand Canyon, local jobs, education/impact aid and tribal health care.

"The voters sent us to Congress because they want solutions, but reckless, across-the-board cuts are not solutions," Kirkpatrick said in the speech. "The consequences of these cuts are not TV sound bites -- they are real. And they will hurt my district and our nation. … It will take both parties, working together, to put a stop to these reckless cuts."
