Gordon Adams quoted in Wall Street Journal on defense budget hearings

in Program

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.”
