Sequestration Dance Continues

From today's Congressional hearing about sequestration, you may hear & see on YouTube this clip from the House Armed Services Committee meeting at which Cong. Derek Kilmer asked our Senior Military leaders about the impacts of sequestration and a potential government shutdown on our military readiness and DoD civilian workforce.

For a fuller overview of the hearing, including the quote of Cong. Kilmer's quip about sequestration, “it is a Latin word meaning stupid,” see this link to Defense News 09/18/2013.

Readers are reminded that sequestration cut $500 B. from the Defense budget in 2013, and proposes to continue by cutting $52 B./yr. X 10 years.
