Military Pay Safe from Budget Cuts!
The White House released its 396-page report that details $54.7 billion in Defense Department cuts in 2013 if Congress cannot agree on a deficit reduction plan to avoid sequestration by Jan. 2.
The report details the 9.4 percent cuts in Defense Department discretionary spending. As promised by President Obama, funding for military personnel accounts, including pay, will not be subject to sequester cuts.
Department of Veterans Affairs funding has also received an exemption.
The White House did hedge in the report saying the estimates found in it are not final.
