hear on the news that the sequester was costing jobs. Personally, I thought that was a good thing.
Do you realize that the Post Office, TSA and Welfare programs are not the only Federal Programs affected, don’t you?
Do you realize that practically every military base in the world (domestic, as well as in war zones) as Federal employees providing critical services to support the warfighter? From logistical support, to rebuilding military equipment, designing classified equipment, programming classified software that is used in combat - Federal Employees are involved, working hand in hand with our military; both enlisted and officers.
These people have done nothing wrong - they have not had a raise in 3 years (not even a COLA), and are now being asked to take a 20% pay cut. Not because the Gov’t didn’t get enough money; but because Obama didn’t get as MUCH MORE as he wanted.
Only in Washington, and only to a Democrat, is getting less of an increase, considered taking a loss.
