Quote of the Day

"Virginia stands to be hit perhaps harder than any other state in our nation as a result of impending federal decisions.  Significant job losses, lasting weaknesses in national defense, and serious economic harm will more than likely result from two sets of massive cuts to national security – first, $487 billion in defense cuts enacted in 2011 and second, $492 billion in defense sequestration cuts currently on course to take effect of March 1.  I voted against these arbitrary cuts, and have consistently warned over the past two years that, combined, these decisions will most certainly jeopardize our military's ability to defend the nation and place the Commonwealth of Virginia in a dire economic situation."

Congressman J. Randy Forbes
