From the Conference

The President’s Sequester

  • The president proposed the sequester and insisted it become law.
  • Now the president wants to permanently increase taxes on Americans to delay the very sequester he proposed.
  • House Republicans have twice passed legislation to replace the president’s sequester with more responsible spending reforms.
  • Republicans believe there are better ways to cut spending than the president’s sequester, but will not go along with raising taxes.
  • Americans understand that Washington doesn’t tax too little, it spends too much.
