Reid: Replace Sequester With War Money

Share this post

Seven months before the War in Afghanistan is set to end, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid suggested Congress take money allocated for that operation and use it to pay off sequester cuts. With airport delays due to the FAA furloughs causing headaches across the nation, the Senate Majority Leader announced he intends to move this evening an anti-sequestration bill that would cancel the budget cuts for five months, paid for with what he said were war savings. "I think we should do something about sequestration," Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said this afternoon. "We should do what was in one of the Ryan budgets; that is, use the overseas contingency fund to delay the implementation of sequestration."
