Sequestoring 10% or more of budget civil and military seems like a good idea now- the odd wastefull procedures that take up 10% now maybe end. If a government department REALLY needs the funds- they can always ask the politicians campaign fund for some extra. Might find some other cost saving things before "furloughs" take effect. Ross Perot made some comments about the waste in government and General Motors- GM bought his stock share at double market price so they could kick him off board of directors, presidental run had a little-(OK, not so little campaign problem)- but the NAFTA job loss was foretold by Ross, the GM debacle also noted well in advance. Greece salary/budget cut for their civil service may be needed here, and sequestoring will give bipartisan excuse. Some government equipment does find it's way to outside users- just the paperwork doesn't catch up awhile. Like the Class 3 amnesty period before stop new tax stamps- 4000 M14s show up to get papered. Marines that had about 1/2 them seem to have been charged cost of M14 on last paycheck before end of service for not returning them to depot- Corps said the books are closed, no other discipline, etc contemplated since 'lost' equipment was paid for- but if the ex-marine was called back up from inactive reserve the Gunnies expected some of the rifles to come back with the called up reservist.

Maybe next election we won"t have a million or so government employees spending most of their time getting the boss re-elected as we did this time around.
