Rep. Rosa DeLauro, Ranking Member on the House Labor-HHS Appropriations Subcommittee, released a report on February 20th that details the impact of sequestration on labor, health, and education programs. In the press release from her office, she  states, “This report thoroughly refutes Republican claims that spending on labor, education and health programs is out of control, and demonstrates that substantial cuts have already been made to services critical to the nation’s well-being. Particularly on the heels of the worst recession in decades, we should be bolstering programs that provide job training, access to higher education and mental health services, not further cutting in to them and harming American families.”
