    CHU asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute.) Ms. CHU. Last night, President Obama challenged all of us to come together to improve our country's fiscal health today and for generations to come.



    Automatic budget cuts, or sequestration, was never intended to be good fiscal policy. It was never intended to be policy--period. If these cuts take place, the American people will actually be harmed by the Representatives who were sent here to serve them. This is unacceptable. In just 2 weeks, if we don't act, across-the-board cuts will deeply hurt every aspect of our lives--schools, health programs, law enforcement, research and development. Under sequestration, all of these will be decimated.

    In our fragile economy, our Nation cannot afford to wait, so I call on our colleagues from the other side of the aisle to rise to the challenge. We cannot keep on going from one manufactured crisis to the next. Work with us to stop sequestration before it's too late.
