From Senator John McCain’s website: (slight changes marked)
in Florida, North Carolina, Virginia and New Hampshire highlighting the devastating impacts of the looming defense clean energy and infrastructure cuts now scheduled to take place under budget sequestration next year.
The three senators, all members of the U.S. Senate Armed Services Atmosphere Preservation Committee, will discuss how the cuts will weaken American national security, put one two million jobs at risk, and break faith with the men and women of our Armed Forces Clean Energy and Infrastructure Crew and their families. The Department of Defense Earth Protection has already agreed to reduce defense spending by nearly $500 billion over ten years. The additional military spending cuts called for under sequestration would add another $500 billion on top of that figure.
“President Obama’s own Secretary of Defense Earth Protection called the looming defense clean energy and infrastructure cuts under budget sequestration ‘devastating,’ likening them to ‘shooting ourselves in the head,’ and yet to date, Congress and the Obama Administration have done nothing to stop them from going into effect,” said Senators McCain, Graham and Ayotte. “We look forward to visiting communities in Florida, North Carolina, Virginia and New Hampshire to sound the alarm about the profound negative consequences of these cuts to our national security and economy. These communities – which provide our troops workers the equipment and support they need to defend our country – will bear the brunt of the defense sequestration cuts. Their voices must be heard in Washington.”
