I dearly hope sequestration happens. This is the only way that the rate of Federal spending gets reduced. First, it is not a cut, but only a reduction in the planned/expected rate of spending. Federal spending will still increase every year to include DoD. Only a Demcrat would call it a cut. This is spread over ten years and is very managable. As far as DoD goes, it becomes a matter of priorities. Watch combat capability, readiness and training be cut to save the overhead. You could fire every third person, military and civilian, in the Pentagon without hurting anything. In fact it would make things better for all below them. Closing a bunch of useless bases would hurt either, but "not in my district".
