NO!!!!!

How to solve the problem: Cut the salaries of Congress by 20%, cut all State officals by 20% cut Govenment personnal that have salary over $150,000 per year by 20%. this is a start. All personnal will continue work there normal hours.

The Govenment officals or Department Heads not capable of furloughing and planning work schedules. People in the US lost jobs, had reduction of salary to keep working or keep a company in business. SEND THIS TO THE PRESIDENT!!!!!

Sequestration looks sound and logical step to control spending and reduce deficit. Its effects may come slowly, but it will effect military electronics supply chain significantly. This will also reduce generally big margin.

That's certainly a rational fear. Here's hoping they come to grips with this problem, at least in some form, in the next five days!

Even though the budget may not directly have effect on sales of electronic components from Avnet by defence. But the unemployment will have drastic effect on the sales of electronics products in near future.
