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.
I'm selling black-market marshmallows and hot-dogs. Get yer hot dogs! Pointy sticks extra.
Things are going to get a whole lot worse for people drawing a federal paycheck. They have to if we ever intend to see the private sector thrive again.
I doubt it'll work that way. Usually, employees have to cover for each others' absence and they rotate the days they are off with other employees, so it's only a 3-day weekend when your day falls on a Monday or Friday. Somebody else gets the three-day weekend when you have to take off Tuesday. Otherwise, the whole office shuts down when everybody takes off on the same day. Some companies prefer to do that.
It depends. Count on the government to do this in a way that will maximize disruption and confusion. And especially anger at Republicans for causing it.
Just one very small example: A woman in a fed job, they are supposed to be saving money so they are ordered not to print anything in color, they can’t even use the colored cartridges they already have?!
It is amazing the things that they are forced to do that amount to nothing. There are 2 people in that office and they need 4 more because of all the stupid stuff that doesn’t come near to what they are supposed to be there for. If one person could just go and do the job that is actually supposed to be done and do it right w/o the running in circles they could get the job done working half days.
Well, Obama needs to make sure that PP gets their abortion funding.
It would be common sense for them to cut waste, but this administration wants to hurt people that get in their way more than they want to “fix” anything. Cuts will be made in ways that hurt the most- hurt those in and out of government the most. That is how it is planned and that is how it will work if it does happen.
