HAPPENING TODAY: GOP TO OFFER SEQUESTER COUNTER-PLAN — Top Republicans on HASC and SASC are unveiling their own plan to delay sequestration through offsetting reductions in the federal workforce — similar to a proposal HASC chairman Buck McKeon has been pushing for more than a year, to no avail. At a 1:45 p.m. news conference, McKeon and SASC Republican Kelly Ayotte will outline their plan to pay for about a year’s worth of sequester cuts through a 10-percent reduction in the federal workforce, achieved entirely through attrition, according to a Senate aide.

Several top GOP defense lawmakers will also be on hand this afternoon to voice support for the plan, including SASC ranking member Jim Inhofe, SASC members John McCain and Lindsey Graham, HASC Vice Chairman Mac Thornberry and HASC member Mike Turner.

OBAMA’S PLAN DEAD ON ARRIVAL? Today’s GOP proposal comes in response to President Barack Obama’s call yesterday for members of Congress to once again delay sequestration through a mix of tax hikes and spending reductions — a plan that had Republican leaders balking. “I’m flabbergasted,” McKeon told POLITICO ahead of the president’s speech. “Until he addresses the real problem, which is mandatory spending, he’s just whistling in the wind.”
