From Eileen Ambrose at The Baltimore Sun:
'Now that the sequester appears here to stay, some agencies plan to furlough workers one day a week starting next month. That's the equivalent of a 20 percent pay cut over the half year.
Critics say the posting of thousands of new jobs this month is proof that agencies have ignored the OMB and continue with unnecessary spending. But some employment experts say it's not that simple, and agencies have valid reasons to post jobs that may — or may not — be filled.This insane neo-bolshevik clown show is just getting warmed up, America.
One critic is Sen. Tom Coburn, an Oklahoma Republican, who launched a crusade against what he sees as nonessential hiring during the sequester. Coburn compiled a list of recent job openings that were posted during the sequester or in the days leading up to it.'
