Wisconsin to Lose Millions if Army Faces Cuts
"Live by the sword, die by the sword" will be more than just an aphorism for some states if cuts are made through sequester in Washington. The wide ranging, across-the-board cuts will hit some states that rely heavily on defensive spending particularly hard. If no agreement is reached in the next several days, defense spending will be cut overall by $34 billion. $15 billion from the Army alone. That means over thirty thousand lost jobs and two billion dollars in spending for Texas which will feel the biggest impact. But, according to the Army, Wisconsin will also feel the pinch, losing 27 hundred jobs and over 300 million dollars in spending. Minnesota and Iowa job losses are expected to be minor due to Army cuts.
