Federal furloughs a non-event? Not so fast

Washington (CNNMoney) - Despite delays and cutbacks on furloughs, federal budget cuts are starting to take root.

It's not the widespread government service disruptions that people feared. Yet, as more federal workers take unpaid time off - forced by the $85 billion in automatic government spending cuts triggered March 1 - the pain of cuts will spread.

    Until the dumbocrats open their eyes and accept that we waste billions of tax payer dollars every year nothing will change. They prefer to take it out of the workers pay checks than to solve the real issues. Another failed liberal agenda playing out....

    Corp. Execs. didn't see any immediate problems when they started outsourcing and laying off a few years back either. That was until they went looking for information, etc. that was no longer available because the folks who used to provide it were gone. We will just have to see how this all shakes out cause looks like what's done is done.
