Guam - Guam delegate Madeleine Bordallo says she is concerned about the effects for the remainder of the fiscal year, but said many programs important to Guam could have been affected much worse. The congresswoman added that at this point, funding for the military buildup remains intact, as does funding for education programs important to the territory. 

But Bordallo is very concerned she says over a $600 million cut to community health care center programs, which provide medical services to under privileged members of our community.

Meanwhile, President Barack Obama today unveiled his long awaited deficit reduction plan, which reportedly would cut federal deficits by $4 trillion over the next 12 years without cutting programs like Medicare and Medicaid.
