|Obama's most recent discretionary budget estimates|
The hive is buzzing.
A 10% cut to 2018 projected discretionary would come to about $115 billion.
There are 2.824 million federal employees, but the discretionary departments do not by any means exhaust them all. But just a 5% cut to this total would mean 141,200 would be going bye-bye.
Lots of homes would be going up for sale!
