As Sequestor approaches it is nice to know that our Congress and our President are so sure that it will be averted it was vacation time with a litte golf with Tiger. The president has stated that Sequestor will be bad for the economy. I guess I should be happy that he at least gets that part...However as per usual, plenty of harsh rhetoric towards the Republicans to posture himself if Sequestor happens. No mention of a plan or how the finacial resources will be realized. I say that the Republicans stand their ground. If the Democratic solution is bully and BS congress to act, call their bluff. The reality of the situation is it will be kicked down the road again and we will have the pleasure of listening to the same old same old. At the risk of sounding like Cpt.Obvious.. If the president continues to refuse to reach accross the divide, nothing will change. The Republicans of course have the responsibility to entertain compromise if presented. What gets lost in the sauce is that Republicans are not just doing this because the President is a Democrat; they are doing this because the current oval office proposal is not what is best for America and is resourced with our childrens futures. I say let Sequestor happen, it is not like things don't already suck...

Interesting take...http://firstread.nbcnews.com/_news/2013/02/20/17030311-first-thoughts-what-happens-if-the-sequester-sky-doesnt-fall?lite

Sequestration will hurt a lot of us around here, me included, but you know what, enough is enough. Let it happen.

I hope it happens this time. I'm with you golfnut, it will hurt. I'd rather feel the pain than my grandchildren.

Maybe it will also have the effect of getting Liberty County to diversify and not depend so much on the military. I am not anti-military but one shouldn't put all one's eggs in the same basket.

It needs to happen. Our credit rating has already been downgraded one time.

I suspect that if we don't let sequestration kick in and do what our Congress has repeatedly failed to do then the credit rating will be downgraded again.

The FDIC is already set to downgrade the amount of coverage for deposits this coming Jan 1.

We are already well into a dangerous slide economically and if Obama keeps his course and refuses to reach across the aisle it will take several generations to get back to where we were a few years ago.

This is the most dangerous President we've ever had.

The president continues to conduct demographic specific to continue to make sure that if Sequestor happens it is not his fault. What am I missing? Oh that right, immigration is more of a priorty...To top that off, did anyone see Joe layout his gun control platform? and I quote" Buy a shotgun and go outside and fire into the air to scare away the intrude. Yet another administration issue that is going to get all messed up. I digress, Sequestor, bring it on and lets get done waht has to be done. Sebe was right as both sides will not risk making the big decsions it will take to get our country on track.

I don't think congress is too worried about it if it happens.

For some government employees Sequestration has already started.

This Friday is the last day for 65 government employees just in the Headquarters Building on Fort Stewart.

Obama already got his tax increase in the last battle. it's time for government spending cuts.

steps that are already being taken as a result of sequestration.

Hagel said the Navy will gradually stand down four air wings, 80 jets and helicopters, beginning in April.

Starting immediately the Air Force will reduce flying hours, having an impact on training and readiness.

The Army will curtail training for all units except for those deploying to Afghanistan, affecting about 80 percent of all Army operational units.

Notices go out later this month for thousands of civilian furloughs, reducing pay by 20 percent.

Steps already taken include a hiring freeze, terminating or laying off some contract employees, cutbacks in maintenance.

Hagel added, “I know these cuts will cause pain, particularly in our civilian workforce.” He added “I’m also concerned, as we all are, about the impact on readiness these cuts will have across our force.”
