Petition Background

On March 1, a series of self-imposed, unfocused cuts will impact a wide array of government agencies and services, from the Social Security Administration to national security to education. This wrongheaded and indiscriminate use of the austerity ax will harm the economy, the public, and the future capacity of the government. It will undermine the growth of the economy.

We must not allow the sequester to be used to force unpopular cuts to Social Security, Medicare, or Medicaid benefits through the Congress. The only responsible thing to do is to completely cancel the sequester through legislative action.

Representative John Conyers understands that and released "The Cancel the Sequester Act of 2013 (HR 900)." It is a simple one sentence bill that, if passed, would completely eliminate the sequester.

We need every single office in the House to hear from their constituents, tell them you are sick and tired of these self-imposed budget crises, tell them they need to get out of the way and let America work and tell them to vote yes on HR 900 The Cancel the Sequester Act of 2013!

S & N, thanks my friend. Any "representative" who fails to sign this Bill should be voted out of office at next opportunity. They've screwed us enough already and collecting lots of bribes for their actions. We'll know which ones are the crooks by their votes.

Sorry this does not pass the smell test. We need a positive action to cut spending and also meet our constitutional responsibilites. This petition merely asks that they kick the can a little further down the road.

John, all the cuts could be done to the Pentagon easily without affecting security or hurting people. Or, restoring equitable taxation on those who didn't need the draconian cuts would eliminate the need for the cuts described here.
