Real Solutions Needed To Keep Our Country Safe



I had to write today because I read the other day that thanks to the super committee’s failure to come to an agreement, the automatic cuts that will happen will cost Arizona 33,000 jobs just in defense department employment!

It’s very scary to think that these massive automatic cuts that we are now staring down are going to cause massive unemployment in Arizona and across the country, not to mention the detrimental effect it will have on our national security since programs like the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter are now on the cutting block.

I know that our leaders will try everything they can to move around these cuts to save jobs, but I hope that we can move past these partisan politics to see that we need real solutions that will keep us employed and our country safer.
