Agencies set up plans to
manage cuts if Congress,
Obama fail to reach deficit deal

Washington Post, by Lisa Rein

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 12/8/2012 1:09:02 AM

Federal agencies are sharpening their plans to carry out drastic, automatic spending cuts starting Jan. 2 if the Obama administration and Congress cannot agree on a deficit reduction strategy in the coming days. Some agencies envision furloughs for federal workers, while others are mapping out a course to slow hiring and outside contracting and put programs on hold if the across-the-board reductions known as a sequester kick in. For millions of Americans, the “fiscal cliff” would mean immediate tax hikes, but for federal employees it also signals big adjustments

My BS meter is on the fritz, but this looks like a bogus idea. One could wish or hope it is true.

The budgets are heavily padded from DC all the way to office level. They can handle a hit or three.

Do a REAL independent audit of every department of government. The whole system is so corrupt and bloated that I think you´d be shocked to see the amount of waste, fraud and theft that is normal operating procedure. Until the government is held accountable to the voters, this will continue. Why is this never addressed? Seems ro me that an audit would be the first order of business. The politicians have been playing fast and loose with the taxpayer dollars and they should be made to answer for not policing these agencies. Next order of business since the politicians are so concerned about the state of our finances, cut their pay, reduce their staffs, and rein in the perks and bennies. Since they made this mess and turned a blind eye to the waste, fraud and theft, they should be held accountable. We are forced to give them our money. They need to be forced to show how and why it is spent. Start with the big agencies first and go from there. Make them take responsibility.

Also, if we go over the cliff, will the Marxist in Chief unilaterally increase the debt limit? That will be a true Constitutional crisis and impeachable offense. Will the Republicans have the cojones to do what is necessary?

FTA: The federal courts, for example, would close some district courts one day a week, impose furloughs of up to four weeks and reduce the hours of security guards. The system would face a $555 million loss next year under an 8.2 percent cut to domestic agencies.

The baseline growth for government has been 8%, so the real cut is 0.2%. Virtually every court has a large backlog. What manager would propose to save money by closing one day a week? A far more practical solution would be reduce the number of lawsuits brought by the federal government against states. This will free up courts, DOJ lawyers, and even help the states control their costs. But media has to portray the cuts as massive and having an immediate cost in lost jobs.

I worked many years ago with an agency in D.C. There was little to do and most of clerical staff did personal stuff. I could not believe it because it took so long to get secret clearance and do all the paper work to get the job. I was bored stiff (in an office close to Director Dulles at the time). I finally quit, went back to finish college and became a teacher...never a dull moment after that! Yeah, government, state, fed and county are overstaffed. Maybe half or a little more do an honest day´s work. I say cut, cut, cut!

First cuts should be to eliminate entire agencies that can´t be found in a constitutional authorization. Then cut the personnel in the remaining agencies. The resistance to that, of course, is the libtards in government would lose some of their influence and control.

Obama thinks he´s so smart. His plan is to raise everyone´s taxes and then blame the Republicans. He can certainly do this, but the heaviest tax burdens fall on his supporters in Hollywood and Chicago.

It´ll be highly amusing to hear the squeals coming from the liberals in January.

Zippy´s minions will never let this happen. They´ve got the grunts scurring around making "plans" that will never be implemented. This is meant to scare the federal worker into thinking their job will be cut, so they will gin up phone calls to Congress. Did not Barky give these instructions to the "folks" during the toy factory speech?

The socialists cannot allow any long-term elimination of government jobs. They know that the majority of people would feel no impact if government jobs were cut. That is why any announced "cuts" will be to high-emotion services: the national parks, police, firemen, teachers....(you know the list.)

“Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men.” — Lord Acton In the run-up to the 2006 mid-term elections, crucial to President George W. Bush’s plans for his last two years in office, scandal reared its hideous head. Again and again. And just for the Republicans. First, House Majority Leader Tom DeLay resigned in disgrace after he was charged with violating campaign finance laws and money laundering. Then, Rep.

The resignation of a Silicon Valley executive who opposed gay marriage and refused to recant has sparked an online fight among gays about whether proponents of same-sex marriage are now going too far in trying to marginalize their opponents socially and economically. The announcement by popular Web browser Mozilla Firefox that co-founder and CEO Brendan Eich was stepping down after two weeks on the job for a 2008 contribution has sparked furious debate over civil rights, privacy and corporate responsibility. A leading gay blogger has accused the movement of displaying the same intolerance activists accuse their opponents of practicing, while

On its present course, the Supreme Court will ultimately overrule its 1976 decision in Buckley v. Valeo, the landmark case upholding campaign finance “reform” legislation. It can’t come too soon, because Buckley expressly ignored the First Amendment’s injunction that “Congress shall make no law .?.?. abridging the freedom of speech.” Instead of free speech, we now have regulated speech that has ensnarled elections in a web of bizarre and opaque rules. Last week, in McCutcheon et al. v. Federal Election Commission, the court began edging away from Buckley by striking down one of its limits on free speech. The details

In 2008, Barack Obama and Brendan Eich both were against gay marriage. Senator Obama averred his support for the one-man/one-woman view of marriage, while Mr. Eich, a cofounder of the Mozilla web-browser company, donated $1,000 to support Proposition 8 — a California ballot initiative that had the effect of making Senator Obama’s avowed marriage policy the law in California, at least until a federal court overturned it on the theory that California’s constitution is unconstitutional. Barack Obama inexplicably remains, as of this writing, president of the United States of America, but Mr. Eich has just been forced out as CEO

When has a secretary of state been involved in so many disastrous, self-initiated negotiations? First, John Kerry convenes — against all advice and holding no cards — Geneva negotiations to resolve the Syria conflict and supposedly remove Bashar al-Assad from power. The talks collapse in acrimony and confusion. Kerry’s response? A second Geneva conference that — surprise! — breaks up in acrimony and confusion. Then, even as Russian special forces are taking over Crimea, Kerry goes chasing after Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov — first to Paris, then Rome, then London — offering a diplomatic “offramp.” Lavrov shrugs him off.

The American left is outraged that the Supreme Court has voted 5 to 4 that limits to the aggregate amount of donations to federal campaigns have been found unconstitutional. Prior to the ruling, there was a 123,200 limit ($48,600 for candidates and $74,600 in contributions to PACs) on the total amount a single donor could contribute in a two year federal campaign cycle. The ruling did not affect the existing $2,600 limit on the maximum donation to any Congressional campaign.

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better´ in a Rose Garden press conference. But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.

Speculation that Romney might run again has largely been stoked by the reunion he planned to host last month in Park City, Utah, for members of his 2012 campaign and debate team and a string of recent public appearances. He has appeared on TV news shows 12 times in the past six months. That’s essentially on pace with Michigan GOP Rep.

WASHINGTON- Seven million people signed up, so there is an appetite for President Barack Obama´s health care law, but that doesn´t guarantee success for the country´s newest social program. Big challenges are lurking for the next enrollment season, which starts Nov. 15. Chief among them are keeping premiums and other consumer costs in check, and overhauling an enrollment process that was advertised as customer-friendly but turned out to be an ordeal.

When it comes to Obama-era scandals, the American Right’s predominant emotion is frustration — a frustration that causes hypertension levels usually seen only in Cubs fans and the unfortunates hired to do PR for Lindsay Lohan and Shia LeBoeuf. Liberals dubbed Ronald Reagan the “Teflon president” because they felt nothing ever stuck to him. President Obama is the Scotchguard president; the would-be scandals that ought to be dogging his administration simply seem to bead up into little droplets before they are briskly wiped away. Conservatives will tell you, and rightly so, that this is happening because the mainstream media — the prestige
