If Congress fails to pass a revised budget, automatic, across-the-board budget cuts will take effect January 1st. Three Republican senators held a “town hall” in Tampa Monday to emphasize how that could devastate national security and the military, but they also offered a solution.
The three senators are breaking with the GOP leadership and calling for a compromise before the automatic cuts go into effect. They want Democrats and President Obama to join them.
Senator John McCain cautioned, without action, the military and communities will lose jobs.
