Kauai missile site hit with furloughs

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 11:40 a.m. HST, Jul 02, 2013

One hundred thirty of the 1,000 civilian employees at Kauai’s Pacific Missile Range Facility in Kekaha will have 11 additional days off without pay between July 8 and Sept. 13, because of the Pentagon’s sequestration requirements, the Garden Island news paper reported today.

Only civilian workers, such as base security, will not be affected by the furlough, a Navy spokesman told the newspaper.

The furlough days are three in July; four in August; and four in September.

These cuts!!! In another article the HUD office is also closed, but I noticed nothing in the SA about the $100,000,000 the Obama family is spending on their African vacation. The "little" people, the "middle" class is suffering--the ones he swore to help out. He should be home and not spending $$$$ and work out these scandals and get a budget--that's his job.

Most of that $100,000,000 is incurred cost (cost that will be spent if there is a trip or there is not a trip). The cost of the air craft carrier of the coast will be incurred no matter what happens - the air craft carrier has to sit some place the sailor will be paid no matter what is going on. If you want to reduce cost, lets look at congressional pensions and congressional trips. Congressional trips use commercial air for the congress person and their staff.

LKK56, if you use that calculus than the flyover at Punchbowl on Memorial Day would just have been "training" an incurred cost, correct? How about the 14 limousines? (Sorry, but I just can't stomach his spending!!!! He flew AF ONE 186 times last year--incurred costs are $180,000 an hour!!!!)
