Hosemann – “It’s irresponsible for the President and the Congress not to be able to govern”
The clock is ticking to avoid massive government spending cuts.
Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann says a majority of Mississippians are not happy with how things are playing out in our nation’s capitol right now. He says while lawmakers will always disagree, at some point an agreement just has to be reached.
“It’s irresponsible for the President and the Congress not to be able to govern,” Hosemann says. “That’s what they got elected for and when you see this type of gridlock, where there’s no common sense solution to this, there is virtually a dead heat.”
Mississippi’s front line of defense will also be at the front of the line for budget cuts when it comes to a possible sequester from the federal level. Adjutant General of Mississippi’s National Guard, Augustus Collins, is paying close attention to these looming automatic spending cuts. While he hopes it’ll be avoided, he says he’s still concerned. Preliminary plans are being made should the cuts happen. If they do, the state’s national guard force may have to periodically do without some of it’s workforce.
