YG Network – “Secret” – Script
ANNCR/VO: The “sequester.” Automatic, across-the-board cuts to our national defense imposed under the Budget Control Act.
What will be cut? We don’t know. Only President Obama and his most Senior Officials know, but they’ve refused to provide details.
A hint on the true impact? Obama’s own Secretary of Defense said the deep cuts would have “devastating effects.”
Don’t we have a right to know what’s being cut from our national defense? Tell Congress to support the Sequestration Transparency Act. Tell President Obama keeping defense cuts a secret is just plain dangerous.
