House 'Stop Government Abuse' week

from NARFE

NARFE expects the House of Representatives to vote this week on a series of bills targeting the federal government and federal employees as part of a "Stop Government Abuse" week. If passed, Senate consideration of the bills is unlikely. Nonetheless, NARFE opposes the entire premise of the effort. Says NARFE President Joseph A. Beaudoin, "The bills are designed more to take cheap, rhetorical shots at the federal government and its workforce than to solve real policy problems. It is disappointing that the House will be wasting its time voting on bills with little chance of passage by the full Congress when serious budget issues, such as avoiding the continuation of sequestration, remain unresolved. Worse yet, it's a bad sign for the country that the House views attacks on our nation's public servants as a political win."
