    Furloughs Cut from 11 to 6

    Yay, if it was only that easy to "find" $900 million before, maybe we wouldnt be having a hard time balancing the budget. :saroll:

    Liberalism; such great ideas, they need to force you to follow them.

    Socialism is for the people, not the socialist.

    I was just getting used to the days off. I had stuff planned every week. I guess some of it will have to wait for next years furloughs.

    Glad to hear that the sky is not falling with the severity as originally reported.

    Standard political BS. They come up with 23 furlough days now we are down to 6. Same thought process should be applied to the SECDEF's testimony to congress!

    Fully dependent on sequestration ending...which will only happen if Congress can reach a deal. History shows it can't.

    I'm not sure they need to "reach a deal"...they could just dismantle it a piece at a time. Amendments to various bills restoring funding to each district or program, you know what I mean?

    Hopefully after Congress comes back from recess and after receiving an earful from their constituents they comeback with the mindset of making a deal.

    That would be great, however I do have much faith in the intelligence of the average constituent. The number of Congresspersons re-elected after voting for sequestions (Budget Control Act 2011) is troubling.
