Weekes, Sen. Warren, Reps. speak at rally about sequestration

Providers' Council President & CEO Michael Weekes joined U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren; U.S. Reps. Michael Capuano, Stephen Lynch, Ed Markey, John Tierney; ABCD President and CEO John Drew; State Rep. Nick Collins; and other community leaders in discussing the devastating effect sequestration would have on Massachusetts if a solution is not discovered before Friday, March 1.

"I think the one word that comes to mind about what's going on in Washington is shameful," Weekes said on Monday morning. "It is absolutely shameful that in this country ... that we're faced with a situation where people are not willing to even talk and are willing to put people in harm's way rather than do the right thing for them. That, my friends, is shameful."
