I hope this hasn't already been posted. I looked for it but couldn't find it.
This whole budget ordeal has a lot of people in civil service scared. Many of the guys in my shop are worried their positions will be cut.

Of course. And all conveniently delayed just enough to avoid any WARN Act impacts on Obama's re-election. Delaying funding has a very unique impact. The people who aren't getting paid due to the delay will take a hike and find another way to feed their families. When the "delayed" funds re-appear, the contractors no longer have the personnel resources to execute the contracts. The people dumped on the street aren't going to abandon a freshly acquired replacement employment.

I often regret leaving my very fun contractor job at Pt Mugu doing EW work after the 2006 BRAC scare. Turns out they did not get relocated to China Lake, but I ended up where I wanted anyway, working on a NASA project for a couple years until Zero ruined that.
So, F'em, I went Galt so to speak, quit working early to collect SS. They lost my $100k+ salary to tax, and now they scheme to screw even more contractors. With luck, a lot of senior guys will do as I did and say to hell with it. Retire and let the system collapse. Not worth bashing your head against the wall with liberal defense neutering killing your livelihood..
Dunno if that is the best strategy, but I was never a deep political thinker. Continuing to feed the Kenyan's machine just ate at me, so saying F'it was easy.
