In just two weeks, Americans will flock to the polls to cast their votes in the mid-term elections where all 435 seats in the U.S. House of Representatives and 35 of the 100 U.S. Senate seats are up for grabs. The people we elect on Nov. 6 will make policy decisions that will shape the future of our country for years to come.
As a federal employee, its your chance to make your voice heard and hold politicians accountable. Besides Social Security, health care, voting rights, and other important issues, your entire livelihood is on the line. Its not about party affiliation. Its about voting for candidates who appreciate federal employees and support our work providing crucial services to the American people.
Heres whats at stake on Nov.6:
1. Your job

Why do public unions even exist?
IMO, THIS Union needs to be disbanded.
...some of them might go to jail...
John Kennedy’s Executive Order 10988.
well if you abused the powers of your unelected office to harass conservatives and spy on the trump administration, you can expect investigation and termination...
They shouldn’t. That already have civil service protections.
..and this is a problem why??
AFGE is a communist organization who outlived it’s usefulness.
Public employee unions should be disbanded and outlawed.
As you can see, and as I was witness to in years past, federal unions do nothing except perpetuate themselves, and suck tax dollars to contribute to the Democratic Party.
I disagree. Much of this is an attempt to overthrow the executive branch of the U.S. Government by subversive means. This is not resistance to anti-constitutional measures. It is the attempt to overthrow a constitutional president to continue the communist overthrow of our country. This is clearly sedition and treason. And those doing this deserve the consequences of these crimes, every bit.
Oh, brother. I am a federal employee, and for me the election comes down to this: the Democrats can never be allowed anywhere near power. Ever.
If that means I have to vote for a less than perfect Republican, thats what Ill do. Pelosi cannot be allowed to touch that gavel.
Why do you insist on posting every union screed out there? I don’t need to read their press releases or visit their websites to know everything they think and say. Democrats good. Republicans bad. Unions good. Non-union bad. Fedgov good. Fedgov management bad.
It’s a waste of bandwidth posting this here.
As a former AFGE member, my only response to them is that they do us all a favor and go impale themselves for the good of the Country
I don’t insist on anything,don’t click on it if gives you the vapors.
They might be forced to do actual work? They can be fired for incompetence? Their union cronies can’t protect them forever?
Yeah, that would sure suck.
And that is how single payer health care would work.
It’s election time and you know what that means, yep vaccinations to protect your child and elderly from the con-serv-a-tiv-itis virus.....
People will flock to polling station and unwittingly come into contact with those carrying the con-serv-a-tiv-itis virus. Kids with con-serv-a-tiv-itis contract it from close family contact and could potentially wipe an entire town if not vaccinated. Worse yet, your children could go undetected until examined by polling screeners when they are eligible to vote.
There is no cost to you. All vaccinations are covered by the national healthcare system. All funds collected for vaccinations are used to fight the spread of the persistent viral threat. One day, we will , together, wipeout con-serv-a-tiv-itis and you can be proud that you have protected your family and your nation with every vote you cast...
