    As the days tick down to the March 1 sequestration deadline, the Aerospace Industries Association has aligned with those in health and education to push Congress to stop the cuts.

  • Blakey: "Time to act" on sequestration
    Already, the negative effects of sequestration are being felt, writes Marion Blakey, president and CEO of the Aerospace Industries Association. Profit and headcount at defense contractors and the nation's GDP are slipping, she says. "Sequestration is no way to run a great nation," Blakey writes. "The outlines of a balanced, bipartisan approach to our nation's debt and deficit issues — a combination of targeted budget cuts, entitlement reforms and additional tax reforms — are well known. It's time to act." American City Business Journals/Washington, D.C./FedBiz Daily blog (2/7) LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story
