    Steven P apparently has no idea of the sacrifices a lot of federal employees make. He must have us mixed up with the MVA or the DMV...

    Federal workers are not allowed by law to strike. As for workers paid for by the rest of us, I'm guessing you mean Congress and the President, lest you forget that the 2.1 million federal workers are middle class taxpayers too. I pay my own salary and get the fantastic opportunity to hear you gripe about it. Oh wait, my taxes probably help fund your child's education, yet I don't have any kids. So, with your logic, should my tax rate then get reduced? Let's see what happens if you lost your job, then went to apply for some entitlements, like food stamps, yet there is no one to process your application. When there is no one at the IRS to process your tax return refund. Sure, put 2.1 million middle class taxpayers our of work. That is really being a great American. Federal workers are great Americans because we pledged to defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic. Cry in your own spilled milk, and stop peeing in our Wheaties.

  • File An Appeal
    Radar Tech
    According to federal law, the agencies are required to take "all necessary actions to reduce or defer non-personnel-related administrative expenses" before they resort to furloughs. We all know that they have not done that. So, file an appeal with the MSPB. Just do an internet search for those letters ( or just use the www with those letters and end with a dot gov) and file an online appeal when they first give you official notice of a furlough. It may not stop the furlough, but it may get you back pay when all the shenanigans are over.

  • Congress on Pay Band / pay-for-performance idea...
    Sunna W
    I like that. Given the fact that we have access to social media and computers, it would be great if each constituant had the option to access a neutral website that "graded" their percieved performance of their Senator / State rep and that annual pay was impacted... Waiting to vote them out takes too long and the impeachment process is poorly understood by most people.
