A ‘mercenary for freedom’ who’s not losing sleep over the fiscal cliff

Matt Brouillette of the Commonwealth Foundation described Joe Sterns as a “mercenary for freedom.”

The Republican has worked for a variety of political figures and organizations. He is the government affairs specialist for Penn Waste, owned by Scott Wagner.

Sterns said he’s not losing sleep over the fiscal cliff.

“It’s OK to cut military spending,” he said.

He said both sides to do more compromising, but Republicans have done more.

“There’s talk about revenue enhancements. And there’s even talk of … raising taxes on the wealthy,” Sterns said. “Some people think, ‘There is no fiscal cliff. We’ve been here before. This is not a big deal. Just let it come and go and nothing will change.’ ”
