The ones who will be eating the "Sequester meal" are about 800,000 DoD civilians who, contrary to popular belief, don't all work in Washington, nor vote Obama. Many of them actually work 50 hours a week keeping our fighters, tankers, bombers, helicopters etc. safe to fly missions. All 800,000 of us will be sent home [furloughed] on or around 1 APR for up to as many as 22 days [could be all at once or spread out over the rest of the fiscal year; hopefully the latter]. The hit to the local economies will be significant. I can't wait for the mid-term elections next year. Gonna be some Dems out of office. I promise.
