    Sequestration is just a drop in the bucket. Look at rising interest rates as the equivalent of more sequestration. Look to Detroit for an example of what's coming to a federal government near you.

  • 3 steps to helping Navy budget problems, but will not happen
    Honest Broker
    The Navy was all onboard with the outsourcing, but the Govt watchdog group discovered rather than savings it increased labor costs by 2 to 5 times that of the loaded Govt employee's costs. With the elimination of the cooling off period a retiring military or civilian must wait before taking a job with the contractor, the outgoing influential people whipped up a frenzy of contracts to those companies by bribing the upcoming new people with promotions and bonuses. Project leads were assigned small purchase credit cards to minimize down time and save on processing costs, but the Navy took them away citing only 6 offenders out of thousands as the reason. Oh by the way, the contractor could buy with their credit cards but at a cost of 15 to 20 percent fee to the Govt. The Navy could save money just in 3 steps; 1) going back to using Govt employees, 2) give them back their credit cards and 3) get rid of retirement job conflicts of interest. Too many Admirals, senior officers and Govt employees along with politicians on the taxpayer gravy train, so doubt the Navy would take that approach. Guess it is time to warm up the old resume and hope there are jobs out there.
