Thought I say it's -- -- I'm saying.
I'm -- the public absolutely not they're not just you're not doing that well but -- there are reductions and whether it's only -- quarter crucial.
Go ahead and then report that and we make clear what -- -- 5000 -- -- -- -- talk to the talked to those who have been laid off that defense industries talked to those who have been furloughed -- and then today.

Agency telling fox it's reevaluated its plan to delay.
And the furloughs in the overtime cuts.
And now everything seems fine we're back with the panel.
-- and it.
It's -- to listen to the different agencies deal with how they are now flexible.
To deal with this these budgets.
Yeah I mean this was something I think everybody figured out.
Pretty early that the administration was coming out and making these claims try to scare people and try to pin on the Republicans and look it didn't really work at all in the polls reflect that so.
I do think what Jay Carney said is right in the long term the -- force gonna affect people it's not Obama is saying it's kind of -- cost some of her 50000 jobs as the CBO -- -- -- so.
You know in the long run it I think it will affect people of -- the Defense Department they seem to think that it's gonna affect them.
There will -- are people that are laid off these are real things unfortunately -- Through making up things frankly exaggerating they undermine the complete the real people that'll be her.
That's what's tough sometimes -- and -- is his.

They discovered in the headquarters of VHS -- ago.
Had been there the whole time they know where was I don't know if it was discovered like last week or something.

To -- limit but it's very obvious what happened here.
Inexperience in the past when they've been shut -- and threats of shut down.
Republicans took the blame that was in the ninety's with a government shutdown and with the debt ceiling if anything bad happen even if it was on related let's say -- The reduction in our credit rating the Republicans that -- -- comfortable way.
Obama assumed it would happen with -- could be sequestered.
So he went after all the stuff that will be really appalling would like -- nine Iowa talks a visit in the White House.
And opening the border and they turned out.
That everybody says what they're spending three and a half trillion dollars a year and you can't have a tour of the White House and you have to end of laying off the border security people.
It's absurd so the blame was headed the administration's way.
And -- the parts of gold all of -- have -- been discovered in every agency in government it's an Easter miracle.
Today Steve take -- said other things can be done changes.
Furloughs can be changed.

The administration complaining that they didn't have flexibility -- when they were -- flexibility rejecting that flexibility.
And now as Charles says -- -- within all of these agencies and elsewhere I mean further out down -- -- people receiving federal funding.
Are finding ways to get around the -- so that you don't see the catastrophic.
Consequences that the administration warned about it was a fascinating piece in the Wall Street Journal yesterday.

MCA and asked about.
How you're gonna deal with the loss of 250000.
Dollars 5% of the budget.
And this person said well we're gonna not -- on we're not gonna not filled on occupied positions.
We're gonna ask people to do a little more work we're gonna seek private donations and in the end he said.
This guy's not going to fall so.
The administration is stepping on its own story -- -- you've got people who are getting this federal money Jay Carney said today go after somebody who's effective with -- well that's precisely what happened yesterday.
And they are not supporting his client.
