Wait until the cliff thingy happens. It isn’t just Defense that is going to take a hit. FDA, PTO, hopefully EPA..and a lot of other top heavy gubmint agencies will feel some of it, too.

A senior defense official said Sunday that the Pentagon would notify 800,000 civilian workers to brace for furloughs in the new year, meaning the workers would be ordered to take mandatory leave without pay for a certain period. The warning is much gloomier than the agency recently offered employees, as it had said there wouldn't be an immediate impact on personnel or operations if a deal wasn't reached by January
Unexpected, I'm sure ..... it seems the future isn't as rosy as folks were lead to believe. /sarc

Not to mention local and state fire and police agencies that rely on federal and state grants for funding.
