  • Are you kidding me?

    Oh, I am so glad that I missed that letter from the whiner. New car? I drive a 1996 Honda. Donate to charity? As a GS-7 - I AM THE CHARITY. Ruin or shorten vacation? Are you kidding me? My only vacation is when I am out sick. Some people live in REALITY - we NEED to eat, we NEED transportation, we NEED roofs over our heads. Donate to University? Donate to Charity? As far as I am concerned, CHARITY BEGINS AT HOME. Think about your fellow workers before making ridiculous statements.......you are already RICH if you are not worried about groceries or how to pay your rent......please keep selfish and outlandish comments to yourselves....you make the rest of us look bad.

    Ok, lets bite, how many kids do you have? I can add a few comments there.....you say a 96 honda, what are you doing with your money? I know a "few" that are 7s and under and life in the DC area isnt rosey, but then again, life isnt. Are you being furloughed? if you are, how many days? We can ask a few more questions, but the point being, why dont you take your own words and do it? "......please keep selfish and outlandish comments to yourselves....you make the rest of us look bad".

  • Not kidding.
    Moderate
    Peecee's comments are very reasonable. Hondas do last a long time if taken care of. And his response reflects the concept that we are not wealthy as many others think.

    Why are Federal employees being "drafted" into this furlough by a bunch of old draft dodgers and chickenhawks?

  • It's All Relative

    We all need to keep in mind that cutting back is relative to your normal spending. I'm sorry that not everyone is a GS-14. Most people, not just feds, spend what they earn, whether it is a GS-7 pay or a GS-14 pay. If you are accustomed to 2 weeks vacationing in the sunshine state, and can't go this year because of income worries, that doesn't mean you are anymore of a whiner than someone who thinks lemonade is a luxury item and now can't buy it. All Feds are being hit for 20%. We all have reasons to whine ... I just wish I could afford the cheese to go with it ;)

  • I say impeach them all!
    MDBBALL02
    Wish the unions could file papers to Impeach the Memebers of Congress for failure to perform their duties and financial malfesance! This is Bigger than what they are doing to Feds, but they could also toss in discrimintation charges since the only folks being unfairly targetted are Federal workers. The U.S. Congress is completely broken, and until they are held accountable, REALLY accountable to the Nation, not just the morons who keep electing them despite their track record, the U.S. PEOPLE cannot expect anything to change!

  • Impeach Congress?
    contrarian
    I think the unions donated to most of the House and Senate who are the problem. Plus they're afraid to criticize Dear Leader.

  • They have criticized Obama
    Moderate
    They have criticized him for the lack of raises as well as other proposals. Problem is the GOP ios forcing his hand by not allowing the proper financing of government.

    its nice to see a retiree be soo...nice to others. I'll ask my congress person if they cant cut your retirement 20%. It seems you dont need it. I guess people have to go thru something before they give any respect to others...
