Rep. McKeon on looming defense cuts: 'Active soldiers will get a pink slip'

In today's Washington Post, Congressman Howard Buck McKeon (R-CA) calls out President Barack Obama on his role in allowing half a trillion dollars in cuts to the U.S. military through sequestration.

The danger of Obama’s inaction on sequestration

Even though President Obama signed the Budget Control Act into law and insisted on the sequester so another debt-limit increase didn’t materialize before the election, it doesn’t appear that he shares the same commitment to resolution. The only conceivable reason for him to perpetuate this uncertainty is to secure a domestic agenda that has repeatedly been rejected by the American people.

He should end the uncertainty, speak truthfully about the consequences and bring Senate Democrats to the table with a solution. Fundamentally, his choice is to treat our troops as heroes or use them as leverage.
