I want to share a message with you on the impact that automatic spending cuts known as sequestration could have on Maryland’s Fifth District and the need for Congress to work together on a balanced solution to avert this irrational process:
Allowing sequestration to take effect is irresponsible and will have serious consequences for Maryland families and businesses. I continue to urge the House to bring a bill to the Floor as soon as possible to replace the sequester or delay its implementation as negotiations for a balanced agreement continue.
I’d also like to remind you that I will be hosting a Twitter Town Hall with the Maryland Congressional Delegation to discuss sequestration today at 4:00 p.m. Please follow me on Twitter at @WhipHoyer and submit your questions or comments to me by using this hashtag: #AskMDDems. If you do not use Twitter, you can e-mail your question to AskMDDems@gmail.com.
Thank you for allowing me to share this update with you.
