Social Security Employee Furloughs On The Way?

The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that Jo Anne Barnhart, Commissioner of Social Security threatened to send Social Security employees home for a week without pay if the agency receives additional budget cuts. She described the situation as "very serious." Barnhart predicted that budget cuts already approved would cause serious problems and stated that she would like to hire 100 additional Administrative Law Judges, but would be unable to hire any in the next year without additional funds.
