This week President Obama signed the Sequestration Transparency Act and by September 6th he will be required to provide taxpayers and Congress with his plan for the defense cuts he insisted be part of the sequestration scheduled to begin on January 2, 2013. The President's own defense secretary has said these cuts would hollow out our Armed Forces. In the Weekly Republican Address, U.S. Sen. Roger Wicker (R-Mississippi) says, "severe and indiscriminate cuts that harm our security are not the way to address America's fiscal challenges." He says, "unless the current law is changed, sequestration will force another half a trillion in cuts to defense programs over the next 10 years," with almost 1 million jobs at risk.
