End Sequestration
Posted on: 02/03/18

Rare Sight in Call to End Sequestration

President Donald Trump, in his first State of the Union address, called for the end of sequestration - one of MOAA's top priorities.

“Around the world, we face rogue regimes, terrorist groups, and rivals like China and Russia that challenge our interests, our economy, and our values,” he told Congress Jan. 30. “In confronting these dangers, we know that weakness is the surest path to conflict, and unmatched power is the surest means of our defense.”

“For this reason, I am asking the Congress to end the dangerous defense sequester and fully fund our great military,” Trump continued. The comment drew applause from both parties, a rare sight from a deeply divided Congress.

MOAA included sequestration on our list of five things we wanted the president to address in his speech. But making the request a reality will be difficult, at best.
