sequester only cuts the increases - what is being spent today is not affected.
this, IMO, all aimed at manipulating the American mind and put pressure on our weak kneed politicians.
Did you even read the article? Have you done any news research on this?
Not only is the military dealing with a ~$45 Billion per year cut that started in 2011, they are dealing with decreased funding due to the Continuing Resolution. Sequestration is the final knife.
Because the military cannot touch military pay during the first year, all of the cuts this year have to come from Operations and Maintenance, the life blood of operations.
I hope America enjoys their entitlement checks, while men and women who have served this nation through hardship, loneliness, deployments, and sacrifice are under-minded.
