Gordon Adams quoted in Wall Street Journal on defense budget hearings

August 02, 2012

Gordon Adams was quoted in the Wall Street Journal regarding the House Armed Services Committee's August 1st hearing on sequestering the defense budget.  WSJ journalist Dion Nissenbaum reported that "House Republicans clashed with President Barack Obama's budget director over looming military spending cuts on Wednesday, in an unusually combative hearing that served as a showcase for a wider election-year debate over who is to blame for a fiscal impasse."

Adams commented in response:

"This isn't about legislating and this isn't even about budgeting: It's about politics... This is all election-year garment rending."
