What’s your position on
Sequestration -- across-the-board cuts to federal spending

In August 2011, bipartisan majorities in both the House and Senate passed the Budget Control Act, which established "Sequestration" -- automatic, across-the-board cuts to federal spending to take effect on January 2, 2013 -- if Congress does not act on further deficit reduction. The Sequestration requires $109 billion annually in federal spending cuts, resulting in a 9.4% reduction in defense discretionary funding and an 8.2% reduction in nondefense discretionary funding.

By supporting, you will be telling Congress that Sequestration should occur.

By opposing, you will be telling Congress to act on further deficit reduction to prevent Sequestration.
