This week on AFGE's "Inside Government" Environmental Protection Agency Local 704 member Elizabeth Lytle, a cancer survivor and disabled veteran, discusses the financial and emotional toll of being furloughed. Maryland Citizens Health Initiative President Vincent DeMarco provides an update on Maryland's implementation of the Affordable Care Act while AFGE's Bill Fletcher Jr. discusses his book, "They're Bankrupting Us!: And 20 Other Myths about Unions".
The Department of Housing and Urban Development, Internal Revenue Service, Office of Management and Budget and the Environmental Protection Agency will all shut down Friday because of widespread employee furloughs — giving feds a four-day holiday weekend.

It's been nearly a year since Congress set up the program to allow employees to take phased retirement, working three or four days a week to help mentor their successors and get used to retirement. And although it's been fast-tracked, it still hasn't happened, Senior Correspondent Mike Causey says. So, what's up?
For many people involved in the alleged scandals at the Justice Department and the Internal Revenue Service, the solution is simple: Off with their heads.

DHS emphasizes there is no evidence of any lost or stolen information.
Most Americans live in a handful of states, like California, Texas, Florida, New York, etc. But during tough times, we sometimes blur those borders and our home-town pride and become honorary citizens of a place like Oklahoma which, once again, is having a very tough time, Senior Correspondent Mike Causey says.
When a newspaper reporter fakes a story, we are outraged. When a network TV show gets it wrong, we are stunned. But we tend to forget, Senior Correspondent Mike Causey says. But when a handful of government workers go rogue, maybe on orders from their political bosses, the entire workforce is tainted for a long, long time.
