I heard a description on NPR of what a lot of the DOD cuts will entail. They would have to furlough civilian workers for a total of 22 days in a period of 6 months, amongst other military cuts. They would have to cut the state dept. budget and slow down Kerry’s big plans for climate change money and other pet projects. So far the draconian cuts Obama talked about are fantasy and I think this cartoon is actually relevant to the analogy of spending issues. The sequester is chicken feed and IMO they should just let it happen. Obama initiated the process in 2011 and now it’s another “crises” because neither Obama or congress can get themselves together to work out the issues at hand.
