President Obama warned Congress that if the sequester cuts go through on Friday, significant cuts would bring about serious consequences in America.

Obama asserted that F.B.I agents would be furloughed and “federal prosecutors would be forced to close cases and let those criminals go,” if the cuts went through.

Obama explained that the cuts would also cut air traffic controllers, airport security agents, teachers, and border control agents which would threaten the everyday lives of the American people.

“These cuts are not smart, they are not fair, they will hurt our economy, they will add hundreds of thousands of Americans to the unemployment rolls,” Obama insisted.
