"President Barack Obama gave a press conference after the Supercommittee officially admitted it failed to reach an agreement to cut $1.2 trillion in budget spending over the next 10 years. Obama told reporters he would veto any attempt to get rid of the automatic cuts which are set to kick in as a part of the sequester proposition, which will be triggered unless Congress reaches over the next year."

They will not be losing their jobs. I have a family member who works for the gubmint- they will be working only 4 days a week, not 5. And paid for only 4, not 5. And the total savings is less than the $50 billion they just gave to the Sandy Storm victims. Which, by the way, makes me wonder why ANYONE has insurance, or why insurance companies even exist.
Like most things here in Merika- it's a flipping joke.
 Quoting: Hollow Bones


Not totally true. I have a family member who will be continuing to work 6 days a week, but will not be paid for their overtime.

Nobody is losing their jobs. They are only furloughs. It will amount to 20% time off between April and September without pay. Either a few weeks unpaid vacation or something like one extra day off a week during those months, without pay.

Nothing to stop them from finding something else to do to make money during the time off.
 Quoting: Jonboy64 30856182


True.

My cousin's uncle's barber's mechanic has it upon good authority that some of these federal employees who have prudently saved up assets and vacation leave are looking forward to these four day work weeks.

They aren't going to be fired. It'll be like a vacation, I think they'll even be able to collect unemployment.

Our military-industrial complex is bloated. But of course it's an important part of our economy and some states economically would collapse if there were real layoffs and cut-backs.

Defense Secretary Leon Panetta had the unenviable job today of informing hundreds of thousands of his civilian employees that they could be furloughed if the sequester takes effect on March 1.


Defense Secretary Leon Panetta had the unenviable job today of informing hundreds of thousands of his civilian employees that they could be furloughed if the sequester takes effect on March 1.

In a letter to the entire DoD workforce, Panetta warned that “should sequestration occur and continue for a substantial period, DoD will be forced to place the vast majority of its civilian workforce on administrative furlough.”

This could impact as many as 800,000 civilian employees, which Panetta argued “will result in a serious erosion of readiness across the force.”

Boo hoo, cry me a river. It's about fricken time! We have been military top heavy for too long despite what the Constitution says. Trillions wasted and missing!

Under article 1 section 8 clause 12:

The Unites States doesn't suppose to have a standing army nor a air force. Congress can only appropriate funds for a army for a period of two years.

The true hurt party here is the Navy and Marines which are to be continually funded under the Constitution. Due to unconstitutional activity, the Navy can't change out a aircraft carrier nor deploy one to the middle east.

The American people have been ripped off due to over redundancy within national defense. Between the Navy and Marines, air force and army missions can still be accomplished. If it can't, those army or air force personnel could be appropriated and integrated within the Naval environment.
