Same thing the local politicians do whenever there is talk of a tax cut.
They always threaten reductions in police, fire, emergency medical and school budgets.
They never warn us that tax cuts could result in fewer fat-butted bureaucrats pushing paper in their multi-multi million dollar ivory tower downtown, cheaper vehicles or elimination of vehicles for bureaucrats, or cutbacks on bicycle lane construction, yuppie jogging trails, etc.
These are actions they are already taking. As to burocraticitis, yes, there's that, but not as much as you might think away from the beltway.
The CNO has already canceled ship maintenance cycles - The Navy is tying up ships at dock and turning them off. No threat, this is actually happening.
People who maintain those ships are being laid off - This is happening now, not March... Now.
It started January 1, 2013. If you can find a copy of this PDF, you'll see what's happening RIGHT NOW... "Navy CR_SEQ Navy Fiscal Actions 130125 - 1105A" It showed up in my inbox this afternoon and shows exactly what's cut, getting cut and will be cut. Highlights include idling 10 Ships in San Diago (Now), 10 Ships in Norfolk (Now) and later this year the iddling of a Marine Task force.
