Most of them are over paid, pampered and not very
hardworking employees anyway so a little vacation
and some reduced pay is not too much to ask.

Maybe they should have thought twice about the vote they cast for a dump as crap President who
cares not about them or their families.

Remember this sequester thing was the Presidents
idea and remember that he lied during a debate that this would never happen - and boom there it is!

There's no money left to spend because GM stiffed us! If they would kindly pay back all the money we have them, there would be more than enough to go around.
