Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.), Ranking Member, House Budget Committee

Congress is in recess, which means your pay and benefits won't change -- at least for the next month. But budget conversations in September (when Congress comes back) may mean you should keep your ears open again. Congressman Chris Van Hollen is ranking member of the House Budget Committee and Democratic representative of the 8th district of Maryland. On In Depth with Francis Rose, he said the most important issue you should watch is money (of course!).

Lawmakers in fed-heavy districts signal support for budget deal

Lawmakers in districts with large constituencies of federal employees are signaling their support for the bipartisan budget deal announced Tuesday even though it would require new federal workers to contribute a greater share of their paychecks to their retirement benefits. The alternatives -- another government shutdown or a second year of the steep across-the-board sequestration cuts -- would have been worse, they argue.

Lawmakers laying odds against sequester taking place

Sens. Mark Warner and Bob Corker and Rep. Chris Van Hollen all believe there is at better than a 50 percent chance Congress and the White House will agree on a budget reduction plan before Jan. 1. But federal pay and benefits, and contract spending remain on the table to be part of the cuts.

In deficit talks, fed groups fear alternatives could cut benefits

Many in government are worried about the threat of sequestration, the across-the-board budget cuts set to take effect in January unless Congress and the White come up with an alternative deficit-cutting plan. But federal employee groups and sympathetic lawmakers are also concerned about such alternatives -- if they contain changes to federal employee pay or compensation. Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.) and a slate of federal-employee unions and groups are warning of such proposals in the deficit talks to replace sequestration.
