HOW OBAMA CARE IS BEING AFFECTED BY THE SEQUESTER

There appears that there will be no furloughs among officials that are over the implementation of OBAMA CARE. The director said Wednesday is not furloughing it's workers as a result of the sequestration.

Gary Cohen, said Wednesday that his office has not cut any hours or pay for it's workers as a result of the automatic budget cuts that went into affect in March.

The Republicans are now saying that President Obama and his administration of politicizing the sequester by them targeting the more highly visible programs; like the Air Traffic Controllers, Airport Security, and White House Tours.

Rep. Greg Harper  (R- Miss.)  said Wednesday that the fact that because ObamaCare officials had not been furloughed proved that the administration had mad this political.

Harper said: " We're talking about at lease a 15% furlough of current air-traffic controllers, resulting in delays and perhaps safety concerns, but yet this has been a selective political item by the administration".

Many agencies through out the federal workforce have furloughed their workers, cutting their hours and pay, as a result of the automatic budget cuts known as sequestration. Furlough has caused Airport delays, and extended all the way up to the White House budget office including the West Wing.
( At the time I am writing this blog post which is Sunday. This past Friday the law makers on The Hill just passed a bill to bring Airport Security and Air-traffic Controllers back on. and if I might add, just in time for them to get their flights home. it won't delay them....... HUMMMMMMMMMMMMM. Makes You Wonder )

Mr. Cohen said the Sequestration has effected his implementation office because they are under a hiring freeze.

"We have been working very hard to avoid the necessity for furloughs, " Cohen said. "we are under a hiring freeze, so I can't hire, I can't replace people who leave, which is a serious issue for me in terms of trying to run a program."

Harper said, a hiring freeze "is not the same" as cutting the pay as existing employees.

"Are you telling me, then, that this administration is furloughing Air Traffic Controllers vital to public safety in this country, and yet you're not furloughing anybody in your agency?"  Harper asked during a hearing of the Energy and Commerce oversight subcommittee.

Mr. Cohen replied, "Well, in effect we are, because we can't replace people who leave"
