AUSA has been urging Congress to solve the sequestration puzzle since March of 2012! If they do not act, it will go into effect this March. The across-the-board budget cuts would severely damage the defense industrial base, and the ripple effects of layoffs and delayed or cancelled contracts could well plunge the national economy into a recession. Should sequestration occur, at a time when our nation faces a wide range of national security threats, equipment, maintenance and soldier training accounts would take the brunt of the cuts; leaving a weakened, less-than ready force.
Please add your voice to ours by sending an email or letter to your Congressmen, urging them to find a compromise and avoid Sequestration.
The fiscal process must be put back in order so that our defense forces can maintain readiness and sustain their ability to defend this nation.
