(NECN) - Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren is speaking out about the sequester.

NECN cameras caught up with Warren before she addressed members of the New England Council in Boston.

For Massachusetts, the sequester could mean the loss of many jobs and tens of millions of dollars meant for child care, education, and environmental protection.

"The sequester is just plain dumb. It is a blunt instrument to make across the board cuts instead of a thoughtful way to bring our financial house in order."

Republicans have said that the White House is exaggerating the impact of the cuts.
