HARRISONBURG -- Billions of dollars worth of budget cuts went into effect after Pres. Barack Obama and Congress failed to reach a deal.

One of these cuts means thousands of kids will get dropped from their Head Start programs.

Congressman Bob Goodlatte discussed the impact these budget cuts would have on the students. He told a WHSV reporter these cuts will ultimately benefit students in the long term.

"Those same children who are being educated all of the money being borrowed to pay for all of this, would be on their shoulders in their future. Their future to have good jobs and good opportunities and not huge debt put on their shoulders is dependent in our government having control over government spending," said Congressman Goodlatte.

Congressman Goodlatte said Pres. Obama and members of Congress agreed on the $85 billion cuts a year and a half ago. He said it's important that agreement is honored to get spending under control.
