Rapid Fire Feb. 21 2013: Hi, My Name is Bob and I’m a Sequestrolic
- As they had pre-announced yesterday, the Pentagon made their preparations for potential sequestration and furlough notifications official. There’s just 4 days left where Congress will be in session before this kicks in. DoD comptroller Bob Hale provides a little bit of comic relief: “When I walk down the hall, people still wave, but with fewer fingers.” Among senior DoD officials, Hale was probably most forthcoming last year with specifics on how adjusting to sequestration might happen.
- Stars & Stripes has a helpful Q&A on the coming furloughs.
