Join our special guest, Mike Causey, Senior Correspondent, Federal News Radio, along with NITP hosts, Bob Leins, and John Elliott for an hour of discussing the current hot issues: FERS Sick Leave, Roth TSP, CSRS Part-Time, and much more.
Federal, military and Social Security retirees were delighted last month when it appeared they were on track for a January cost of living adjustment of around 3.3 percent, but Senior Correspondent Mike Causey says living costs are down, believe it or not, and the COLA may be in danger of stalling.

Which of the following items are NOT at stake in the current White House-Congressional debt limit dance: pay raises, your insurance premiums, the health of your brand-new puppy or future raises for federal and Social Security retirees?

Federal and postal workers and retirees are under so many attacks that many of them don't know which of the threats is real and which is most serious. Senior Correspondent Mike Causey says a lot of people are worrying about something that probably won't happen while ignoring several bigger threats.
Most federal workers, no matter how critical their jobs, are accustomed to working behind the scenes and away from the spotlight. And it was that way with our late colleague Suzanne Kubota who loved her job, loved federal workers and loved making all of us look better. Senior Correspondent Mike Causey takes a look at Suzanne's life.
Would federal workers be happier if the government would backup managers when they discipline slackers and fired incompetents? Or is that already happening? Senior Correspondent Mike Causey finds out.
Even as Americans are getting bigger it seems their work stations and cubicles are getting smaller. So, senior correspondent Mike Causey says, you literally are in a tight space.
For a long time now, lawyers have been the dominant profession in the House and Senate. But, Senior Correspondent Mike Causey says maybe we could use some more doctors and carpenters who understand the measure-twice-cut-once rule.
