Obama traveled to Newport News, Virginia, on Feb. 26 to pressure Congress to avert the automatic federal spending cuts set to take effect on March 1. "The sequester will weaken America's economic recovery," Obama told thousands of workers at Newport News Shipbuilding. "It will weaken our military readiness. And it will weaken the basic services that the American people depend on every single day."
