Hoyer: If Pelosi Were Speaker, "Sequester Would Not Happen"
REP. STENY HOYER (D-MD): "Yesterday Senate Democrats offered an alternative plan that is balanced and will turn off the sequester. If Nancy Pelosi were the Speaker of this House, and I were the Majority Leader of this House, sequester would not happen. Representative Chris Van Hollen of the Budget Committee offered an alternative as well, as I said. Speaker Boehner and Leader Cantor ought to allow it to come to the Floor - they have not yet."
