Sequestration would impose massive forced cuts and break long-standing benefit promises to those who served and are currently serving our country. Earned healthcare benefits would become more expensive for all of them, commissaries could be closed, base housing would become shuttered and VA education benefits would be diminished. This will devastate our all-volunteer force that already has been made to bear the nation’s wartime burden and have made many sacrifices for the last 3,650 days.
As an American, a veteran and an educated voter, these automatic sequestration cuts are unacceptable. I believe in keeping budgets in check, but I don’t support gutting America’s ability to defend itself. Our leaders must come together and help find a way to stop sequestration!
