NARFE: 'What happened to shared sacrifice?'
NARFE sharply criticized the budget resolution proposed by Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., chairman of the House Budget Committee. The resolution was approved by the Budget Committee on a 19-18 vote. NARFE President Joseph A. Beaudoin said the budget plan "would further shift America's budget burden onto middle-class federal workers by a 10-year total of $368 billion." The budget would extend the current two-year pay freeze through 2015, cut federal worker paychecks to pay more for already sound retirement plans and shave 1 in 10 federal jobs. "Whatever happened to shared sacrifice?" Beaudoin asked.
