Cancellation of this lecture makes sense considering the topic. We are spending far too many dollars on "soft", unnecessary expenditures that can be delayed or better yet totally eliminated. It would be great if more of these types of expenditures were given the light of day so we know how our tax dollars are being wasted.

Am I supposed to feel guilty? My budget has been cut over 25% from last years thanks to the ongoing losy economy. This agency cannot deal with 2 or 3 percent cut? They are still probably getting as much, or slightly more than last year, just not as big a raise as they wanted. Boo Hoo, I feel so sorry for them.

This is the pain Obama wants us to feel so that we will vote for more tax increases. Please bring on the "pain" of having one less "lecture". OMG the sky is falling.
Actually, I was talking to my coworkers about this issue today.
If a 3% cut is CATASTROPHIC then what is 4% or 5% or what we in the real would have to face which is much higher.
Love to see what "impacts" happen when government takers "lose" their cushy budgets.
