7:37 am
federal agencies, you lose jobs, contractors, based in northern virginia will have to cut back as well and certainly, while federal employees may get a 5% pay increase they may have to pay more towards retirement so they are bringing home less pay every two weeks. there is potential for the economy to slow down. just like if box office sales are not good in hollywood, car sales slump in detroit when the federal government cuts back it could upset things. you sent over a list of what are the effects and the department you say with budget gains, agriculture, state and veterans, it may be a shifting of funding if you will. >> some shifting resources for sure i mean the gains, veterans affairs and energy for example have a lot to do with the economy with healthcare reform and growing demand for medical services after the wars in iraq
7:38 am
and afghanistan the other is picking up as well because there is a push by the obama administration, to focus on work force development that is why you see gains of commerce then you go over to the pentagon and see a few thousand jobs cut among civilian workers, airforce and army as the.gone starts to shrink in coming years as well. they might look at smaller budgets defense, education, epa homeland security hud interior justice, labor, transportation and treasury, how bad will the cuts be? >> those non-security ones may stake more painful cuts notably, depending how you look at obama'ortation homeland security may grow but year to year may not be as big transportation especially because white house is pushing for airport and construction

7:40 am
republicans see it differently that is a fight that isn't going to happen until after the election at this point it is expected they will have a debate whether to extend bush era tax cuts right now the white house doesn't want it to happen republicans do once you have that election you can have a president who is about to leave or a president who just got himself four more years up against a congress that is probably going to be reshaped come january so it will be a very contentious holiday season here in washington as they try to sort that out. >> as it seems to always be. >> always be. >> it h keep the federal eye columnist, with the washington post, you spent time with us we appreciate that. >> 7:40 a.m., still ahead madson square garden is going to the dogs. >> as the world prepares to bid another farewell to don cornelius a celebration of his life in a way that only seems
