Congressman Richard Hanna Leaves DC Before Sequestration Issue Is Solved

CNN caught up with Congressman Richard Hanna (R-24-NY) on Thursday afternoon as he, along with the rest of Congress, was heading home without solving the approaching sequester debacle.

The congressional exit was even more reason for experts to believe a solution to the cuts is not probable.

“You’re not going to be here when these spending cuts kick in,” said the reporter from CNN.  Hanna replied, “If they need me I’ll be back.”

Sequestration spending cuts are scheduled to kick-in at midnight on Friday.  The two-percent, across the board cuts are expected to be felt locally, especially at the Utica School District, which is already facing a financial shortfall.

President Obama is scheduled to meet congressional leaders on Friday, although most believe, that meeting will not produce any new results that would prevent the spending cuts from commencing at midnight.
