"For months, the Department of Defense (DOD) has been forced to cope with the harmful, meat-ax budget cuts known as sequestration, which took effect in early March. The adverse impact has hardly gone unnoticed: Furloughs, grounded combat squadrons, and canceled ship deployments are just a few of the troubling changes now characterizing America’s defense landscape."
"Washington’s soaring taxing, spending and borrowing have contributed to the weakest economic recovery since the 1940s."
"It's the same on Capitol Hill, where Senate Democrats have failed for nearly four years to pass a budget for the country while nearly $6 trillion has been added to our debt."

“The President and his allies in Congress sold Obamacare by promising it would cost the taxpayers less than $1 trillion in its first decade. Instead, the Congressional Budget Office now makes clear that once fully implemented, it will cost far more than that over its first ten years: a whopping $1.8 trillion."

@MikeCrapo: Glad to see the #Senate has come to a solution to extend flexibility to the #FAA to deal with furloughs without gimmicks or taxes. #idpol

@SenatorWicker: It is unconscionable that DOD is issuing military furloughs instead of cutting wasteful spending. http://ow.ly/lyGlk
