New York (CNNMoney) - Federal workers are bracing for furloughs that could start to take place in the next few months if Congress doesn't replace massive budget cuts scheduled to begin Wednesday.
Even as a fiscal cliff deal was beginning to emerge Monday afternoon, lawmakers and the president still lacked agreement to stop measures carving some $110 billion in spending power from federal budgets each year over the next decade through automatic cuts.
It is unfair–congress and senate need these.
Does this mean that members of the House will get furloughed based on seniority? That should drain the swamp of tea partiers.
I should start looking for another job. (Current Fed employee)
what is wrong with these people the congress need them is this all you has to do is mess with other people an their jobs you want your job leave people alone
with this congree and this speaker nothing will suprise me.
The Tea Party has always worked to destroy the power of the federal government. Creating chaos within the Department of Defense is a fine way to further that goal. We all need to identify and vote against every Tea Party-supported politician in the 2014. Fearful, anarchistic bigots are not the sort of people we need to lead America in a modern world.
