  • How is hurting one group of people
    wisenekt
    going to help another group? Issa is using the old "eat your food because there are starving children in Africa" bit. Eating or not eating food does nothing to help African children just like freexing pay for federal employees does not make private businesses decide to pay their employees more or to not lay them off to see their stock price rise a couple of points. "Good-paying full-time jobs should not be limited to those fortunate enough to work for the federal government," the committee chairman, Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., said in calling for the pay freeze.

    I just found out my agency is looking at RIFs in fiscal 2014, economically secure my rear! Cuts are happening already and I have no idea if I’ll even have a job in 12 months time.

    Contractors can't get by on a pay freeze with cost of living adjustments. Housing and gasoline costs keep rising every year and you lose lunch money doing that.

  • I would like a vote
    JRob
    When can we make the idiots who can't do the basics of thier job accountable? As one of the GS nothings about to be furloughed, I would love to vote on a reduction to zero pay for all congressmen and senators until a budget is passed.
