Landrieu Statement on Sequester-Related Votes


Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Senator Mary L. Landrieu, D-La., released the following statement on her votes today on sequester-related bills:

"I am strongly in favor of a balanced approach to fix our debt and deficit problems in a way that has the least negative effect on the promising economic recovery underway across the country. However I could not vote for either proposal today - one of which refused to raise any additional revenue and the other that would disproportionally take the cut out of agriculture. Louisiana farmers and rural communities are a very important component of our economy at home and I do not think it is fair to single them out in this way. I remain committed to a 10-year balanced approach to fix our problems, but neither plan presented today would have done so," Sen. Landrieu said.
