Billy Long: Missourians Want More, Not Fewer Sequester Cuts

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- Congress is on break and Long returned to his roots at Springfield Rotary.

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- Congressman Billy Long was back in the 7th District Tuesday.

Congress is on break and Long returned to his roots at Springfield Rotary.

The former auctioneer helped the Rotary Club auction off items for a fundraiser. He also talked about the civil war in Syria. He's waiting to hear more from the military before deciding whether we should be involved in another Middle East war.

"You want to make sure who you're helping because they're on Israel's border, which is our only democratic ally in the area and we all want to do the right thing for Israel. So if you go in there and help the wrong side, then what do you have? So it's a problematic situation."

KOLR10 News also asked the congressman about sequestration.

"The people that I've talked to seem to be doing well. In fact, when I got out in restaurants here in town, people come up to me. They want to see more sequestration, not less. So I think that's different than it could be in some parts of the country, but we haven't seen any measurable affect here at all."
