    I'm unhappy about the disrespect shown to federal workers by the suggestions that our benefits be cut. I'm fortunate to be covered by CSRS, but for my entire federal career of 49+ years I've contributed 7 and 7.5 percent of my gross to CSRS retirement. There's no cap like Social Security contributions. I'd go along with any cuts, but I don't see Congressmen biting the bullet like the Feds have had to. If they go to a high-5 retirement, that just means I need to work longer. And when my pay is frozen, the local merchants suffer. I don't have as much money to spend, and I spend my income. C'mon folks, give us a break. We help the economy.
