Sequestration lost in town hall

 

Aug. 21, my son Caleb and I attended Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers’ town hall meeting. The room was packed with people who had wide range of views and opinions on the topics of jobs, health care, Social Security and immigration.

I was disappointed, though, that sequestration and the effect that it is having on our local children and families was not mentioned a single time. Many programs have had cuts that result in loss of services to those who need them most; people of all ages.

We need Congress to come together and create a balanced budget. Our community needs to speak out, as they did last week, and let our elected officials know that sequestration is not the answer.
