Analyzing the budget deal
Wednesday - 12/11/2013, 3:57pm EST
But, the cuts come at the detriment of federal workers and some military retirees.
Newly hired federal workers will be required to contribute 4.4 percent of their salaries toward their pensions. Percentages will not increase for feds already on the job.
Cost-of-living adjustments for military retirees under age 62 would be equal to inflation minus 1 percent, which would be phased in gradually, according to the bill summary.
The deal also includes a provision allowing the Office of Personnel Management to offer a "self-plus-one" insurance option within the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program.
On this week's edition of Your Turn, host Mike Causey discusses the budget deal with Jessica Klement, legislative director of the National Active and Retired Federal Employees group, and Sean Reilly and Andy Medici from the Federal Times.
