  • Why pay anything?
    Goshkruse
    Why pay Federal workers anything? If the Politicians believe they're nothing but useless slogs, why bother paying them anything. Cut their pay completely and offer no benefits. Who really needs them anyhow? Who really cares about the FBI, IRS, DOE, DOD, HHS, etc. . . they're nothing but a bunch of stiffs living off the taxpayers teet.

    Reality check
    Goshkruse You would be the first to cry and whine if there were a natural disaster with your hand out asking for money. Grow up, you need feds, just don't want to admit it. Pay your taxes and support my lavish lifestyle. I had better go back to reading the news-don't want to crimp my style. I have a big conference to attend, paid by you!!!

    Wow, the ignorance and stupidity of the right wing amazes me. You probably think global climate change is a hoax too.

  • Actually
    JHunt
    I'm a Repub, work for the Gov and think that there is just as much to dis-prove "global warming" as there is to prove it. But that's another topic. As for the pay freeze...I'm for doing it as long as we can keep the Gov running. Maybe if we (the Gov) can CUT some spending we (the Gov) can pay our employees more. Just a thought.

  • The Senate is Controlled by the Democrats
    Radar Tech
    The Democrat leadership, you know - friends of the working man - just voted to freeze our pay for a 3rd year. They are just following the lead of the Democrat president that already froze our pay for 2 years 3 months by executive order. The ignorance and stupidity of the left wing amazes me. You probably think the Federal Reserve printing money is a good thing, too.

  • 3rd year in a row
    Alan
    As Federal Employees/civil servants, is this anyway to show your thanks to us for again relenting on any kind of increase? Senate and the House need to establish a pay freeze on every CEO in America and their company personnel as well, with the stock market sorring, the employment market moving ahead why do you constantly attach the Federal Employees. President Obama, do not approve these bills. The economy is prospering at the expense of the wrong people. Do not deny us another year of pay increases, no matter who much. This is totally in error and should not be allowed to happen.

  • The employment market is moving ahead?
    Rob
    You need to look behind the numbers. The reason the unemployment rate is down is because there are fewer people looking for jobs. It's amazing what little research people do. Do you really want the government freezing the pay of CEOs?

  • this must be a joke
    Rob
    I thought it was only the GOP controlled House that was unfriendly towards feds. If my math is correct the Dems have controlled at least 2/3 of gov't since January 2007. We're now in year number 7 of near total control by the Dems and what do we have? A MESS!

  • Your math is faulty
    FERS Fed
    Dems don't fully control the Senate. GOP blocks any legislation benefitting other than the wealthy. ..... Most recent example -- February 27 GOP filibuster of plan to replace the sequester with a set of smaller spending cuts and new tax revenues.

  • who's to blame?
    RicknATL
    "We think we owe the American people a balanced budget," House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan said on "Fox News Sunday." Considering it was Bush and the GOP who busted the budget, they should be the ones balancing it. Not the middle class/feds.

  • really Bush?
    JHunt
    He hasn't been in town for over 4 years and your still going to pay the Bush card? Was it Bush that ran 1+ trillion dollar deficts the last 4 years and 1+ trillion dollar deficts for the next 4? How's the middle class balancing the budget? As far as I know your taxes are the same right? (except payroll tax)

  • so the DEMS are just as bad
    dante805
    So where is Mikulski and Sanders and the rest of the Liberal Dems STANDING up for the Govt workers? Well when push came to shove they lost their backbone....ALL POLS whether D or R are all the same. The Dems just lost their lock on the federal worker. Oust them all in 2014...
