This is the deal:
We must stop outsourcing jobs now.
Bring back US jobs.
The Tyrant will do for the Air Force and military
EXACTLY what he did to NASA.
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.
just do it....the military is just as bloated as the rest of the federal govt....
Military spending is going the way of cops and firemen and teachers anyway.
The employment cost is increasing hugely.
Including $50 Million vacations for the First Mooch and her snarling posse?
Congressional "fact-finding" junkets?
Cuts like this are showing up in all the agencies and I don’t have a problem with that. Don’t know about DoD but CMS could trim alot of its bloat and still get the work done.
My question is this: my son is studying for the ASVAB right now and planning to test next month. How do these cuts appear in recruiting? Unless I missed it this article doesn’t really touch on that. My son talks to his recruiter regularly and never hears about hiring or recruiting freezes. Yet one of my friend’s son was riffed last year. So it appears to be an ongoing thing. Should he prepare for a plan B?
cut out all the vacation travel on air force one. that’d save probably a hundred million dollars over the next four years.
Aim low in the US CHAir Force...
“...a possible end to all noncombat or noncritical flights.”
I suppose that would include Air Force One.
Lot of comments from people on this thread who are clueless as to the military, its capabilities and requirements, the threats it needs to respond to, the equipment demanded for its mission, and the training demands it requires.
And these same people ridicule the “low information” Obama voters?
hmmmmm, I guess $600B doesn’t go as far as it used to.
Maybe the Air Force can cut those $10 billion satellite programs that never launch and fly airplanes instead.
Why? Because with the new SECDEF and Secretary of State (along with their courageous commander in chief) we will be friends with everybody. After all, we OWN the Chinese because THEY own our debt. We are now best buds with the Muslim Brotherhood, so what could possibly go wrong there? Iran is waa-a-y overrated. Even if they had a nuke, there is NO WAY they could never hit the USA with it. They're too far away! The War On Terror is over. We declared it victory (well, maybe a "draw"), so now everybody happily can go back to what they were doing before.
Besides, it's not like there are any other choices for cuts out there. It doesn't make sense to cut any of the scores of millions of EBT cards, endless unemployment insurance, exploding Social Security Disability, critical things like "school teachers" and "infrastructure', anything useful like HHS, Energy, Homeland Security, EPA, a million pork programs, and plug the horrendous waste, fraud, and abuse that permeates everything to the rotten core.
Nope. No way.
Just cut the "cops and firemen" instead. Yeah. That's the key!
