Todd Harrison, Senior Fellow, CSBA

Todd Harrison is a senior fellow at the Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments. He joined Tom Temin and Emily Kopp on the Federal Drive to help sort out the reality of where Defense spending is headed and who will benefit.

Dave Deptula, now a senior scholar at the Air Force Academy. Gunzinger talks to In Depth with Francis Rose about revamping the Air Force for the next fight.

Todd Harrison, Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments

The military's commissary system is in line for cuts in the Fiscal 2015 budget request from the Pentagon. Those cuts, like a lot of other cuts, have some pretty strong opponents. But in the case of the commissaries, the opponents aren't necessarily obvious. On Pentagon Solutions, Todd Harrison, senior fellow for defense budget studies at the Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments, explains why the commissary system is generating some much heat.

Sequestration 2.0 would mean furloughs for DoD's entire civilian workforce

New version of sequestration would reduce overall tab to DoD but compress across-the-board cuts into just seven months. A leading-think tank's "back of the envelope" calculations show the military would have to furlough almost every civilian.

Sequestration effects becoming clear for DoD

DoD's operations and maintenance accounts will likely be hit first if sequestration goes into effect. Unlike its procurement and research and development activities, which can continue to function on funds obligated in prior years, O&M dollars generally get spent right away. In preparation for sequestration, the Pentagon has already let go of tens of thousands of temporary hires and is drawing up a contingency plan for one-day-a-week furloughs. Deputy Secretary Ashton Carter says the unpaid furloughs would begin in April and continue through the remainder of the fiscal year if sequestration is not avoided.
