Rep. Kline says Americans should expect big budget cuts, job losses

Email

ST. PAUL - U.S. Rep. John Kline predicts there will be no last-minute agreement to fix massive federal budget cuts, an inaction that would cost many American jobs.

The Minnesota Republican said one study indicates 4,000 Minnesotans could lose their jobs when the automatic cuts, known as sequestration, hit next month.

“My expectation is that we will see the cuts take effect,” Kline said told reporters at the state Capitol this morning.
