Federal Furlough Notices Go Out As Sequestration Takes Effect

Source: Huffington Post

WASHINGTON -- Federal employees began receiving furlough notices on Friday, as the deep budget cuts known as sequestration went into effect.

More than 1 million federal employees face the possibility of unpaid time off due to the across-the-board spending cuts. While some notices are going out on Friday, the furloughs will not actually take effect until April, as the government is required to give employees 30 days' notice.

The Democratic staff of the House Oversight Committee released a furlough notice sent to an assistant U.S. attorney on Friday, which read, "This memorandum notifies you that the Department of Justice (DOJ) proposes to furlough you no earlier than 30 days from receipt of this notice."

"We recognize the difficult personal financial implications of any furlough, no matter how limited its length. We will make every effort to keep you informed as additional information regarding agency funding becomes available," the letter added.

So are Harry Reid and the Senate Democrats who haven't passed a budget in over 4 years. Also, Obama is getting full paychecks, even though he originally proposed the sequester. Hmmm.......partisan much Dumbo?
