Romney-Ryan would target federal workers

New York (CNNMoney) - Federal workers' jobs will be under fire if Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan win November's election.

    We can start with congress. 6 figures to work 4 month outta the year? Travel paid, expenses, etc.

    Didn't house republicans get some new cars not too long ago? Why are they spending?

    Oh, the military consists of fed employees as well. No point in excluding them.

    Do they realize that federal workers are US citizens with the right to vote?

    Exactly how dumb and stupid is Robmey. Its not fair for government workers to make more money than the tax payers they serve. For one thing this isnt slavery days and we dont serve anyone. Secondly we pay the same damn taxe that everyone else pay that we serve. B!$@h

    So you say Federal workers are a problem....HMMMM....This includes the employees in the White House and Congress in addition to the military. Is the plan to outsource this to foreign countries?

    typical Republicans....they want you to work they just don't want you to make a decent living doing it....UNLESS you happen to be a CEO, top manager or one of the other so-called "job creators"

    Actually it is the opposite, Republicans are always mocked for being foolish in working numerous hours while Democrats enjoy life.

    Are you talking about Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid??? I agree, they have so much money they really shouldn't be collecting a paycheck or benefits, the same applies to Boxer, Feinstein, etc.... Senator or Congress, don't matter, they are all so filthy rich they should not get a paycheck or benefits.
