It certainly doesn't appear that they know how to reduce the deficit. It just keeps ticking higher each and every second.


Not true! I heard the president say just 2 days ago he cut the deficit by 2 trillion dollars. \:\/

They are not cuts. They are reductions in growth.x

He cut nothing, as crappie said the reduced manpower, Gov will spend more and more and have not cut anything. Nor will they.

Same here. I'll get a 20% pay cut for 6 months. That's not exactly insignificant. \:\)

Several government contracts where my wife works have been put on hold till further notice. They are now working 32 hours, being told to prepare for 24 or rotating weeks off and on.

Not that this will affect any or the politicans lifes at all.

I have not heard anything of it but will this affect disabled veterans who receive a pension due to their injuries? If anyone has heard anything about this I would be interested to know.

Down at the VA Friday and talked to a Dr. he seemed to think they will be sheilded from the cuts for the time being.

I know this thought will be highly unpopular.....

Government employment is NOT supposed to be a first choice Cadillac career.

Government should be kept as small as possible. Much of the government jobs are make work... Not that the job doesn't need done, or isn't a valuable service.... But it has been rolled into the government for political reasons.

MOST of the government "jobs" should be handled by the private sector. Imagine how much better the DMV would be run if owned and operated by a private company that had competition !

Compare the US Postal service with Fedx and other private carriers.... Without the government BS red tape, a product or service is delivered with flexibility, speed, and quality or your competition beats you out of the market place.

There is no security in today's fast paced economic world. Innovate or Die is the law of the jungle. Having government retard innovation and progress for the sake of political power, and a false sense of "job security" is just piling water up behind a weak dam made of straw.

Those in government service who think their job is "secure" or should be.... the sequester is a shot across the bow.
The Russians have instituted a 13% flat tax while we have a "progressive" income tax that is punishing success and investment to the tune of 40% ++. Where do you see an economic boom 10 years from now ??? Where do you see economic foundations being eroded ?

Government workers should be examining their jobs and trying to make plans to do that job in the private sector when the cuts DO come.

I don't wish pain on anyone, but it IS coming. The credit card has been run up to high. The day is coming when we either cut government spending and jobs, or collapse the economy and government.
