D.C. Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton said she is dubious of the numbers, coming from a pro-defense group, but has expected D.C. would suffer economically from sequestration.
“I think that these numbers, or numbers like them, do exactly what the hammer of sequestration was supposed to do,” she said. “You want to avoid sequestration? [Congress] must sit down and do the hard work, make necessary cuts without impeding growth. ... We ought to have a balanced approach, and the hammer of sequestration is to help us reach that balance.”
