If this happens, it will cripple the country.

800,000 government workers taking a 22% pay cut.

Say goodbye to small businesses that operate in the vicinity of a DOD installation.

Notice that congress is not taking a cut??

What is going to be really funny is when all Govt. workers start yanking money out of their Thrift Savings Plan.

Since the government is already borrowing against the G fund to support social security, it is all going to come crashing down.

If every govt worker took $10000 out of their TSP, it would sink the government.

It would be an immediate drain of 8 BILLION.

Washington would be saying "WTF happened"?
