Remember all that whining and whimpering and shouting about the budget 'sequester' last year ?

Well it seems they were right.

It did in fact lead to mass permanent lay-offs.

For a total of *ONE* according to the Government Accountability Office (the report only includes official numbers and facts. They seem to have omitted any under-the-table graft and bribery of course).

The jealous government departments (at the direction of jealous Obama) spent big money and time to make every single person in the nation feel guilty as Hell by unleashing a massive coordinated attack against spending less money and having us believe a million jobs would be lost forever.

At least one politician is suggesting an ......... yes, an *Investigation* !!




The Government Accountability Office has finished its analysis of the across-the-board federal budget cuts known as the sequestration and determined that exactly one — yes, one — federal employee lost a government job.

The GAO surveyed 23 federal departments affected by the budget cuts for its 200-plus page analysis released this week. The report shows that most departments had to cancel or limit monetary awards like grant programs, many reduced employee training or travel and seven agencies reported furloughing a total of 770,000 employees for at least one day and up to as many as seven days.

But only one agency actually cut their staff: the U.S. Parole Commission.

NOT SO BAD: The much-feared federal sequestration turned out to be bad news for just one person, a federal employee in the Department of Justice who was the only one fired as a result of the cuts, according to a new GAO report.

It laid off one person.

That "one" will be on the news, happen to have a book coming out, and will be set for life.

Actually, I see it as good news for now. That they managed to cut other areas to save jobs. The economy growth is sluggish enough as it is. Are there more sequester cuts to come? That might hurt if more cuts are to come, jobs will be the only cut left.

From the article:

"The GAO surveyed 23 federal departments affected by the budget cuts for its 200-plus page analysis released this week. The report shows that most departments had to cancel or limit monetary awards like grant programs, many reduced employee training or travel and seven agencies reported furloughing a total of 770,000 employees for at least one day and up to as many as seven days."
