The "sequester" hits the White House

Things are beginning to look serious in Washington D.C.: 

In the latest dire warning about the effects of automatic government spending cuts known as the "sequester," an Obama administration official said on Wednesday that not even the White House's own operations will be spared.

"The Executive Office of the President is subject to the sequester, and we anticipate significant disruption to our operations and mission, which could include furloughs," said the official, who did not provide further details.
There is already some speculation that the "sequester" could e.g. stop Obama from using the White House teleprompter. 
Finally, a chance to meet the real Obama!
