getting paid for not working

Postby Donray » Mon Jan 28, 2019 9:44 am

Why should federal employees get back pay if they did not work? Ans, no federal elected person should have been getting paid.

I like how the democrats still wanted to take taxpayer paid vacation overseas when they should have been working to open the governmnet.

I don't know who are bigger idiots, republicans or democrats.

Lol. Great soundbites that have zero basis in fact.

The House passed bills to reopen the government. The GOP Senate Majority Leader refused to vote on them.

All elected officials are paid a salary, they aren't paid hourly.

You seem to have more adventurous taste in vacations than most of us.

I see. This in your mind amounts to a "tax-payer funded vacation".

How do you know she was angry? I saw nothing that indicated that.
They told me if I voted for Hillary Clinton the president would be emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable. They were right. I voted for Hillary Clinton and got a president that is emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable.

They probably have contracts. It wasn't the employees fault that the leaders of the government wouldn't let it function.
