14. On the defense side this will hit civil servants, support contractors, and defense contractors

The support contractors will get hit the hardest. The civil servants will be offered incentives to retire, and some lower priority defense program will get cut.

No one seems to care about the impact to the non defense side of the Federal budget. If every department has to take fare share, any number of support programs, including those the newly laid off could use, will be hurt.

Those who say "just move the dollars out of defense" have no clue about was sequestration means.
