Furloughs are here for Defense Department workers
Posted in the Minneapolis Forum

That giant sucking sound you hear is the paychecks of around 650,000 civilian Defense Department workers:
Furloughs for Department of Defense civilians begin Monday, a move that amounts to a 20 percent cut in pay for hundreds of thousands of defense workers over the next three months and will disrupt operations at installations around the country, Pentagon officials warn.
It was almost worse—the furloughs will total 11 days per worker, but originally the plan was for a whopping 22 days of furloughs. But a 20 percent pay cut over three months is going to be, for most workers, more than can be made up for by just not saving or by cutting the obvious luxuries. A 20 percent pay cut hurts. Which is what Republicans wanted, to protect corporations from more taxes by hurting working people.

Look at Dumbo. Stealing the name of a vastly superior person and then trying to pass himself off as smart. Too bad you just don't measure up.
As for the furloughs, a better solution would be to lay off 20% of all government employees. Across the board, just get rid of them.
By the way, our tax obligation this year is 9% higher than it was last year. That means that Dumbo is simply parroting the TinkProgress talking points again.
Think for yourself for once Dumbo. You might surprise yourself at what comes out of that mouth of yours.

Too bad(comma) you NEVER measure up, troll....
As for getting rid of government workers, you couldn't make the grade.....even with 2 hours and 15 minutes of "effort".
