Well "lookingandwonder ing" my guess is that you are an overcompensated and under worked government teat sucker. Get a real job and stop taking from the system.

Sequestration is just around the corner. Finally, we will see some cuts in the out of control military spending that is bankrupting this country.

It's not much but it's better than nothing.

According to the survey, military personnel are expecting a 40 percent cut in a combination of housing, clothing and food allocations. The survey also noted that personnel are expecting about a 32 percent cut in educational benefits and a 31 percent cut in discretionary spending.

Almost three out of 10 military families believe sequestration will mean they are less likely to be promoted and more likely to experience early separation, the survey notes.

An early forced exit from the armed forces is seen as a serious financial threat, with almost nine out of 10 survey respondents hoping to qualify for a traditional military retirement by completing at least 20 years of service, the survey notes.
