rjakobi: Someone needs to find a smarmy meme of Obama saying "you're welcome" that we can post in every one of these threads.
Nutsac_Jim: Ok,,. so just to be sure.. You agree people did get paid their money, which was the subject of the post... and youbring in a totally unrelated subject of the sequester cuts and argue that?and I am the one that is wrong?
MBooda: Yay! Oh fark you so very much for giving back some of what you stole from us during the furloughs!
Nutsac_Jim: hehehe.. lookie. Someone thinks federal workers lost money in the furlough.
Serious Black: I have several LESs that confirm I did lose money because of the summer furloughs.
BeerLion: hehehe.. lookie. Someone who doesn't know the difference between the furlough and the government shutdown but still makes an ignorant snarky comment.
Nutsac_Jim: Inform us how government workers lost money. Thanks.
somedude210: While you are correct that the money lost during the shutdown was repaid, that furloughs caused by the Sequester cuts were not. For some of us it was as high as 14 days over the course of the summer that were unpaid, for others it was as little as 6 days. Be it 6 or 14, taking a hit like that still does a lot of damage to your savings.So fark you, you know nothing
Nutsac_Jim: If you have kids, and the shutdown was painful, one should really think long and hard if you really love your kids.
soup sandwich: PanicMan: RminusQ: Some people can look at that chart and that CBO paper and say "federal workers are paid too much!" I look at it and wonder why private sector workers are getting screwed so hard on benefits.For those saying federal workers are paid too much, If I was a cynical asshole I'd respond with "Why do you hate the troops? Freedom isn't free!"its not just that fed workers are overpaid, its also that they underwork...except that the work hey do also hurts the economy by excess regulation and misdirected resource allocation
LasersHurt: AllDevicesZeroDown: trickymoo: AllDevicesZeroDown: [www.investors.com image 211x229]Did it hurt your back to have to lug such flagrant horseshiat around or do you own a wheelbarrow?http://www.cbo.gov/sites/default/files/cbofiles/attachments/01-30-Fe dP ay.pdfNot sure if you can read. But just in case...Based on your post, then your linked rebuttal, I can safely say you understand NOTHING about the original chart, and therefore do not understand why several people think it's bullshiat.

oukewldave: Is this where I should feel bad for government workers who get a million days off a year and amazing benefits?
