Congresswoman Ellmers appears to endorse sequestration cuts

The Washington Post reports [1] that the sequester confrontation in Washington is a “moment of truth” for the Tea Party. The story also quotes Congresswoman Renee Ellmers as endorsing the disastrous cuts sequestration will bring about [2].

“Rep. Renee L. Ellmers (N.C.), who is part of the 2010 class of Republicans but not a member of the tea party caucus, said she worries about the sequester, especially since her district, home to Fort Bragg, would be hit hard. But she said it may have to happen.

‘I do believe it will start a very important process that will help our economy to start to grow,” she said. “The debt that we have at the federal level is our biggest threat for our country.’”
