Statement by Senator Mark Pryor On Sequestration


Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Senator Mark Pryor today released the following statement after voting against the Democratic and Republican sequestration replacement bills.

These bills were one-party solutions that would do nothing to solve our fiscal problems. Farming communities should not be forced to bear the brunt of the cuts, and I won't support the Democratic proposal that slashes core strengths of our economy. It's unacceptable that Republicans would put veterans' benefits and Social Security on the chopping block, while doing nothing to maintain programs that benefit our economy, jobs, or middle-class families. Further, this proposal would cede all decision making authority to the President. It's time to make smart, deliberate cuts based on the merit and effectiveness of programs, and work to find common ground.
