Not sure what you are referring to there. I am talking about the speeches coming out of the white house about how the sequester may force layoffs of teachers and firefighters and Air Traffic Controllers and so on and so forth. I know that this is a pile of crap. If your claiming that the military has cut back it wouldn't be because of a sequester that is yet to take place. Any cuts from this sequester would hit in April at the earliest.
I would prefer that the cuts in spending would be targeted to programs such as Tom Coburn's list of Government Pork Projects first and foremost but since our President has refused to target wasteful projects like pancakes for yuppies and free smart phones for everyone the forced cuts in the sequester are better than the alternative of doing nothing.
