None of this is "due to sequestration". The government is spending more this year after sequestration than they spent last year.

Further more, federal employee pay has zero to do with it as their pay has been frozen for 2 years now. Even though their pay has not been part of the increased budget, they are the ones who pay the price through furlough.

This is liberal political posturing, nothing more. It was Obama's creation but he has been successful in doing his usual, blaming someone else.
