The President has proposed a half-percent raise for federal workers in his 2013 budget and that small salary bump has lead to big controversy. Some Republican lawmakers want to see federal workers' pay frozen for at least another year. Plus, they have another plan for that money (some want to use it to pay for the payroll tax cut). The possible pay increase has led to another White House vs. Congress moment and this time, it's during an election year.
Also on tonight's show, White House officials, along with the Defense Secretary, have released the new vision for the Pentagon. Defense Department officials warn America will no longer be able to be fully engaged in two conflicts with the new budget cuts. There is also a push to look east, toward Asia with a focus on cyber warfare. CQ's John Donnelly explains the changes and if they'll really stick when it comes to war.
