Do you remember the good old days? For many federal workers that would be 2010 and 2011 when they were worried about threats to their retirement and health insurance benefits that eventually fizzled and died. Well, they may be coming back but this time things could be very different, Senior Correspondent Mike Causey says.
What if we get sequestered and nothing happens? At least not right away? Senior Correspondent Mike Causey wants to know what if the government, instead of furloughing all FBI agents, TSA screeners, and air traffic controllers on the same day finds a way to muddle through -- at least for awhile.
