Video: Sen. Mark Warner Rips the “stupidity of sequestration;” Urges Budget Negotations “Now”


    I have had my issues with Sen. Mark Warner, but in the last 24 hours, he’s really nailed it on two important fronts: 1) the Iran nuclear deal, which he announced he’d be supporting (thank you!); and 2) his warning about the “stupidity of sequestration” continuing another year, and the need for serious budget negotiations starting immediately. On both these counts, I’m with Mark Warner 100%. Actuallly, add item #3: his work on rethinking the employer-employee relationship given the rise of the “gig economy.” Good stuff.
