The next time Congress is in D.C. for an extended period of time, somebody should suggest that the House and the Senate investigate how much time and money has been lost preparing for a partial government shutdown almost everybody says would be a mistake. Senior Correspondent Mike Causey says.
Robert Hale, the military's CFO, said reductions in force would cost more money than the Defense Department would save. But hiring a freeze and involuntary unpaid furloughs would be likely for civilians.
