Pelosi Statement on Senate Sequester Votes

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi issued a statement after  the Senate failed to pass a progressive sequester replacement bill that included revenue:

Congressional Republicans have shown no interest in averting this latest manufactured crisis.  Our country is only one day away from debilitating, across-the-board spending cuts that will harm our economy and undermine job creation.  Yet Senate Republicans rejected a balanced plan to prevent these cuts and House Republicans won’t even allow a vote on the fair, responsible Democratic proposal.

Leader Pelosi is right- progressives have put forward balanced plans to avert the sequester, and conservatives have led us directly to its doorstep.
