Flexibility, Please…No Flexibility, Please

FLEXIBILITY, PLEASE Morning D writes, “Top Pentagon officials are clamoring for flexibility to better absorb across-the-board cuts.
NO FLEXIBILITY, PLEASE “On the other hand, many defense lobbyists privately worry that flexibility could be bad for business. It’s easier to influence budget decisions in Congress than at the Pentagon – meaning strong congressional oversight is important to industry. But even then, can an overworked professional staff handle the burden of reprogramming requests? Suddenly the simplicity of sequestration’s cuts looks slightly more attractive – everyone gets taken down a peg.”
