    George,
    BO proposed the sequestration - it was HIS idea.

    And actually there were no actual cuts in the budget, just a minor reduction in the growth rate of a few budget items.

    Then he puts Republicans in the DoD to be the bad guys in carrying out the cuts the Republicans wanted to have, just not these cuts.

    Tolstoy,
    not more of this, but cuts in other areas. Or perhaps some major restructurings.

    It seeems we will soon have more Majors and Generals than PFCs. Typical of Govt. fire the workers and hire more supervisors.

    So why are we giving money to other countries?

    F-16 jet fighters, and two hundred tanks to Egypt wasn't cheap. Add that to the billions of other giveaways.

    Also, with subsides to Mosques, and Obama vacations, these furloughs can easily be avoided.
