DNC Mounts Full-Tweet Press On Sequester

Brad Woodhouse knows a thing or two about sports, so it should come as no surprise that the communications chief at the Democratic National Committee went for a “flood-the-zone” strategy of all-sequester-all-the-time Friday on Twitter as House Republicans remained away from the Capitol.

By mid-day, Woodhouse had re-tweeted several sequester-related messages to his more-than 16,000 followers. He also was showing off the #StopTheSequester hashtag.

One such tweet was a photo of Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood, a Republican member of the Cabinet, warning that the deep cuts the sequester would bring would cause air-travel delays.

Another of Woodhouse’s tweets broadcasted the new DNC video on the sequester, the large slash-and-burn budget ax which is to fall March 1 without further congressional action. President Obama warned about the sequester–enacted as part of a “doomsday device” in the 2011 budget deal–during his recent State of the Union address.

Despite the time pressure before the sequester cuts take effect, GOP House Speaker John Boehner currently has the House in recess.
