  • Awe! Poor little overpaid leeches!
    Government employees got huge pay increases when your Messiah Obama came into office while the rest of America has suffered cutbacks and lost jobs.. And now your crying because you might have to take a vacation with money paid in the future? We, your slaves who are forced to pay your saleries, are amused.

  • facts
    You must be imagining those pay increases. The federal workforce has been under a pay freeze for the last few years. They also pay taxes, have homes, pay for child care, pay for health insurance, pay for retirement, etc. The only difference is they are serving their country while the rest of the population works to serve themselves.

  • what a total load of crap.
    Government employment is a job. Like any other job. There is no "service" associated with it. Employees are attracted to government employment in the same ways as private sector. I have worked in and around the government for 35 years, and I can assure you that some federal employees are excellent, most are not, and some are simply abysmal thieves...just like any other bureaucracy. Grow up

  • "most are not"
    100% agree and by most I think the # is around 60-70% at a minimum.

  • Some people have no idea
    It does annoy me that the citizens of the country are so ignorant of the federal workforce. Take one agency, let's say the FBI, they are federal workers expected to solve any federal crime, stop all terrorism, and assist local law enforcement solve their crimes. These people are the best of the best. They could be successful in any field, yet they serve their country. But their pay should be cut because some guy working at a cell phone store or hauling gravel got a pay cut in the private sector? Those same folks will be the same ones blaming them for not stopping the next attack that kills thousands because they were furloughed due to an inept governing body.

  • And why does the public not value the work of Feds ??
    Could it the arcane and intrusive programs that require the rest of us to fill out forms, etc, that are returned with dire warnings for even the most minor of errors, etc. The fact that for most things, there IS no reason for them other than "policy". . . And as for pay freezes, layoffs, etc ?? Welcome to the REAL WORLD. . . those of us in the private sector have been living with that, and worse, for years now. What you're hearing is the playing of a mass of tiny violins. . .

  • Where have YOU been?
    You think the interaction you have with the government is bad? Trying being on the inside. Some vague reference to "policy" is the excuse for every idiotic decision that we put up with every day. Pay freezes? We have had them for years and continue to face them, in addition to the furloughs. Lay offs? Most of those have been contractors, but that just means that we have to do the same work with less people in less time for less money, all the while thanking our lucky stars that we continue to have our crappy little jobs. Leaving is not an option, as the private sector is suffering as well. So the latest inaction by the elected ones just means we get a little more dumped on us for absolutely no reason. I liken it to Enron, where the head honchos made out like fat rats while the workers got hosed. The only difference is that Congress and the Prez will never truly be held accountable.

  • Low Morale?? Try making it in the private sector, useless leeches.
    Over-paid, useless federal gov't employees (who work 1/2 days and never get fired), yet another violation of our rights. The gov’t constantly violates our rights. They violate the 1st Amendment by caging protesters and banning books like "America Deceived II". They violate the 4th and 5th Amendment by allowing TSA to grope you. They violate the entire Constitution by starting undeclared wars. Impeach Obama. Last link of "America Deceived II" before it is completely banned: http://www.amazon.com/America-Deceived-II-Possession-interrogation/dp/1450257437

  • Well, maybe now some of those Federal employees...
    ..will feel compelled to whistle-blow on some of the criminal support we give to those terrorists in Israel. Free money to Israelis who take year-long vacations while Americans suffer. Think about it.
