Our President can not come up with the money to ensure our countries security, but can promise billions to other countries, and take multimillion dollar trips overseas with his family. Sorry but it seems some priorities are just not situated properly. I must be wrong, but I believe that during a time of sequester he is required to ensure this countries operations over those of others. Seems he don't like that law either.

Lets take a look at some things before you complain its all obamas fault.
First lawmakers have demanded the DoD take half a billion dollars in tanks that it doesnt want. The navy wanted to retire 7 cruisers as too costly, the Congress said no and said none of the money its giving can be used to retire or inactivate a cruiser. It wants to retire 600$ million in aircraft, same story. Thats just some highlights.

You do remember something called the super-committee right? Reps and Dems come together to discuss how to make smart budget cuts? McConnell made sure that the Reps said no to any tax revenue increase and from there it was impossible to decide anything else. Funny thing, the sequester cost 85 Billion, but the immigration bill will restore 40 billion of that back into DHS for immigration agents. Even if it doesnt pass congress its amazing how quickly things fall back and people forget.

McConnelll and the Super Committee were worthless. They wouldn't even turn up for roll calls, return thier messages or wash dishes.

A good leader should lead. I imagine you're won of the many Clinton lovers, well Clinton was able to lead. Also with your super partisanship lets not forget Truman's "The buck stops here." You want to redirect blame, but you should be blaming poor leadership.

Obama's all-star tour of Africa could likely fill the National Guard's budget hole, I'll bet. But one who has never performed service can never appreciate or support those that do it regularly.

What we "see" with human eyes, is not reality!

But you have to try and understand something...... Sending a Billion to Egypt and giving amnesty to millions of illegal aliens in our country is costly. Who cares about our own armed forces and civilians???

But we can still send billions in foreign aid to Pakistan, Egypt, etc...

Squeeze 40 hours of work into 32 hours time? Won't happen. And for any fool who believes it will, I hold the deed to a bridge I will sell you.

They'll just do 40 hours of work in 40 hours, but get paid for 32 of it. That's how the federal budget works.

In some areas, they get paid for 40 and do 20!

They will not be at work for the last 8, so how can they do 40 hours an d get paid for 32? You must be taking that new Socialism math in your schools.

Of course not; they will do most of the job, and nonessentials will wait—just as employees in the commercial world do when there is a pay decrease—though they usually get just a lower pay rate, not time off.

They will get paid only for the amount of hours they are at the job site. AND that is 32, not 40. Getting the country ready for the 32 hour week of work.
Federal employees never get a pay cut, only a pay freeze. AND that has been in place since February 2011 and will not go away until after at least 2016. Now they get hours cut.
