Whidbey Quakers to initiate Pentagon talk
Mar 15 2013, 3:57 PM
The ongoing “sequester” debates among members of Congress and the Obama administration over the federal budget mostly focuses on taxes and cuts to the entitlement programs that benefit many of the rest of us. A better focus would be on the Pentagon budget and its assumed “entitlement” of some 50 percent of the federal discretionary budget.
The “sequester” is a federal law passed with the assumption that it would never have to go into effect, that ultimately the government would not allow huge across the board cuts roughly divided equally between domestic spending and the Pentagon budget. But the law has now, in fact, taken effect, and we will begin to see its impact soon here on Whidbey.
