Sequester Squeals: Republicans Get Their First Taste of the Recession and They Donít Like It

Sequester Squeals: Republicans Get Their First Taste of the Recession and They Donít Like It

Who would have guessed it would come to this.

Republicans are a mess right now; coming face to face with the cuts theyíve championed in rhetoric for years is causing an utter collapse. Republican staffers are complaining that GOP leadership is giving them no clues about how they can prepare for the upcoming cuts, while leadership is complaining that without being able to pay their staff (public sector workers) a decent wage, including a raise, they canít attract the best workers.

The Hill reported Monday:

One veteran chief of staff lamented that his office hasnít given raises to its employees for several years ó worrying that without a reward for their hard work, it will be difficult to attract bright individuals to Capitol Hill.

ďWhatís the incentive for smart talented people to come work for Congress?Ē the source said.

Head banging on desk. Yes, RepublicansÖ Come to the water. Come slowly to the water. Now drink.

Guess what, Republicans? Most Americans arenít getting raises right now, and itís not because they suck at their jobs. Also, thanks for making the exact same argument that public sector unions have been making regarding cuts to teachersí pay, etc.

Can you still eat? Iím not sure weíre on the same playing field yet. See, these cuts are going to take food from babies and seniors. Forgive me if I find that a little more troubling than Republican retention.

Meanwhile, lost Republican staffers wander aimlessly looking for a few pencils they can cross off the budget as panic sets in. This is but the beginning of the sequester squeals, and itís coming from within the Republican Party. Getting what they wanted isnít working out quite as they imagined.

If the Republicans can not handle a 2.2% cut - just like the Dems are saying they can not handle a 2.2% cut - then let them resign.

Do it now so we can get on with getting honest people in office in Washington.
