We should SEQUESTER each and every representative /sarcasm and cut their pay, their medical, their retirement, their staff, their travel, their face-time, their lobbyists, their contributors, their benefits, etc., etc.

DEFUND socialist collectives, foreign and domestic. BIG GOVERNMENT IS CRONY SOCIALISM.
DEPOPULATE socialists from the body politic.

Things are tough all over. Would you prefer to lose your job, pension, and healthcare like the coal miners are? 24 million out of work, not LWOP (leave without pay). Of course this sucks, however many more have suffered far worse because of the government.
Hang in there! And, wow; just wow. What a fr*ck*n mess we are in...
I think there is at least 85 billion in waste to be found in a 3.7 Trillion budget.
Rome is burning! We all need to wake up! We need to stop the crazy spending.
Thanks for posting, ducttape45. Important information BUMP!
Wow, thanks for the post.
The same folks who went golfing with Tiger Woods in Florida and skiing in Aspen over Presidents day weekend are the ones responsible for this hardship.
You’ve still got a job woth good benefits. Look on the bright side.
Has anyone asked what funding cuts will take place at NPR, PBS, NEA, etc? Will the NEA be cutting back on any art funding? What about cuts to Michelle’s dress designers, gardening staff, or 90 assistants? How about POTUS’s golf caddy? Will the President save taxpayer money by enrolling his girls in public schools?
Would it be better if they just laid you off 100%? That happens more often in the private sector than furloughs. I’ve done the furlough thing and it sucked, but it was temporary and I’m still here.
Best of luck to you. I mean that sincerely.
Thanks for the update.
We are all in for a rough ride.
You can always quit and find another job, right?
Frankly, I can’t drum up any sympathy for “government employees” at this point.
Your hours wouldn’t be cut if you were “essential”, and if you are not “essential”, why are you employed by the government?
Uncle Sugar ran out of money. Talk amongst yourselves.
WRT your points:
1. Here’s a way to stick it to the “man” - find a part time private sector job and show him who’s the smart one now!
2. What if the contractors are, gulp, full grown adults and maybe don’t need supervision all week - oh the horrors! If they’re not full grown adults then, unlike GS, they can be fired. If their “supervisor” doesn’t like their perfomrance and still does not act, whose the one at fault?
3. I’ve got some names in mind for the RIF if you need them....
Ubama’s hatred for America, and for people who take responsibility for their own lives, is so great he will simply brush you off like dandruff. His goal at this point is to ensure that red states and white people pay a hefty price as the result of his childish tantrum.
Chin up. Things will get better, especially if the Republicans can pull their heads out of their behinds and get the stones to bitch-slap this punk Ubama the way he deserves and win the 2014 elections in large fashion.
but its not going to kill anybody to have an extra day off....I'd enjoy it....like a snow day....
just think....more 3 day weekends to enjoy with your other multitude of 3 day weekends....
I didn’t know the layoffs begin after 30 days of furloughs .
That is the first I heard of that.
That makes sense though.
Cavuto had a GOP Senator Colburn as a guest who claimed he found specific $45B in waste and crap in Defense that should be cut.
The taxpayers even pay for the Federal Employee Unions work having nothing to do with us.
Its war and so far the GOP has lost every one since after the 2010 elections.
Welcome to the party.
I have to laugh at the people squealing like stuck piglets.
Those workers are dealing with the same apprehension and fear that the rest of us have dealt with over the past five years or so.
Welcome to our world. Sucks, doesn’t it?
Like I’m gonna cry for some under-worked over-paid Govt Slackers! Try being a small business man with this Regime’s daily harassment. The best damned thing that can happen for this country is to have all Fed so-called workers go home for permanently.
