You broke it, you fix it

According to recent reports, that’s what Boehner said to Obama this week.  With only a week left, it is very difficult to imagine an agreement is in the offing that would avoid the drastic and indiscriminate cuts to our nation’s defense.  But the “not knowing” is likely worse than any cuts that might happen.  Since no one knows where the likely cuts might fall, everyone is keeping their powder dry and frozen.  Layoffs, furloughs, hiring freezes, and other leadership guidance to stand in place have nearly brought the DoD to a standstill.  It’s as if the anticipation of what’s to come is worse than what’s to come.  What do you think?



Military Pay – Another victim of sequestration?

It’s being reported that Leon Panetta is recommending a mere 1% pay increase for the military in 2014, blaming sequestration.  While at the same time, some federal workers enjoy part of an $11B pay increase package, despite attempts to reverse it.  There have been reports of the services cutting their numbers, and just this week, an aircraft carrier rotation was cancelled in the Persian Gulf reducing from two carriers.  And these are not all the efforts underway.  Despite all these pressures, America’s warfighters will continue to ‘support and defend the constitution’, even if they have to do more with less.  This means those who remain will need to be as sharp and well trained as possible.  Trio Consulting is proud to help with that.  Check out our certified defense acquisition courses and consider which one is right for you.  If you need a course not yet on the list, check out our “Future Classes” for what’s coming.  If it’s still not there, contact us to request we add the course you need.  Or just comment below.

Sequestration will not happen… Congress is vested too much in the status quo.  Whether Republican or Democrat, the politicians have ingrained interests in maintaing government spending.
