For weeks the Campaign for America’s Future has been rallying the public, pressuring Congress to simply repeal the sequester.
And now, Rep. John Conyers has answered our call.
He has introduced a bill so simple even Herman Cain will read it.
The entire substance of the “Cancel the Sequester Act of 2013” reads as follows:
Section 251A of the Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985 is repealed.
That’s all it would take to repeal the sequester. No need to inflict any more austerity. No need to kill any jobs. No need to furlough workers. No need to cut retirement security.
The bill is now on the table. All it now needs is for the public to demand Congress pass it.
