Gov. Says Budget Cuts Can Be Avoided
The governors of Maryland and Virginia say they agree that huge, automatic federal budget cuts set to begin this week need to be avoided. Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell says cuts indeed are needed, but not with such a heavy burden placed on defense under the plan. Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley says they are job-killing cuts, and the country can't cut its way to prosperity.
