No Sequestration Exemption for Israel

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand
Rep. Nita Lowey
Sen. Charles Schumer

March 8, 2013

I am writing to oppose any legislation which would exempt aid to Israel from across the board budget cuts such as sequestration. This is not only offensive to those who will suffer hardship from the cuts, it is likely to prolong the impasse and make sequestration hurt the US economy even more. It is my understanding that HR 938 could have this effect, and that there are other actions under consideration which could also exempt aid to Israel from budget cuts. I ask that you oppose HR 938 and any other measure which would reduce the impact of across the board cuts on Israel.
