Civilian workforces mentioned by this article does not include contracted
mercenary (body guards) working for contracted military forces now fighting our
wars at home (drones) and abroad.The real non combatant civilians
this article implies has been on a pay freeze for 17 years and Obama decided to
take credit for it 2 years ago as his idea. The federal civilian workers have
been in attrition for the same number of years (17+) so who the sequester will
affect is still a mystery. National guard people have been fired and deprived of
all benefits promised to them, like health care, VA disabilities, civilian
jobs.My hope for government cuts will be in the private army sectors
of the CIA, NSA, ATF, Secret Service, sell extra Air Force One plane and
helicopters. Then cancel presidential party accounts for the Royal Family
costing $1.6 Trillion dollars a year. If the Democrats and president
was serious about improving government, eliminate the expense account of Obama
and friends could net us a surplus to pay some funds on our debt and interest.
Will there be budget cuts for Pakistan, Egypt, Iraq, Libya, Omen, etc?
