Senator John Thune (R-SD) on sequestration warning [from FNC Justin Fishel] -

"Despite the White House's guidance on Friday, over one million Americans employed by the defense industry fear that their jobs are on the line unless President Obama and Senate Democrats engage with Congressional Republicans on replacing the unbalanced defense cuts with alternative savings. It is troubling that the Obama administration would openly encourage the violation of federal law and offer to pay the legal fees that resulted, but the American people can see through this political move and understand the consequences of inaction."
