Pentagon informs Congress of plans to furlough 800K civilians - The Hill's DEFCON Hill

The Pentagon notified Congress on Wednesday it will be furloughing its civilian workforce of 800,000 employees if sequestration goes into effect March 1. Defense officials have warned lawmakers that sequestration will devastate the military and lead to a hollow force, but the civilian furloughs will be one of the first major impacts felt by the across-the-board cuts.

I'm calling BS on this story. There are no cuts in spending, only reductions in the rate of spending increase and there is no way that a reduction in the rate of spending increase will cause anyone to be furloughed.
