I'm not made out of money but I hope all of you are...because...
...the House Democrats just voted on and are trying to pass a bill that WILL GIVE ALL FEDERAL EMPLOYEES "6 "ADDITIONAL" WEEKS OF "PAID" "PARENTAL" CARE LEAVE" over and above 30 days paid annual leave, 10+ days paid sick leave, plus all 11 paid holidays off the job. The bill is going up for a third reading as I type.
This bill, if it passes in the house and is not killed in the Senate, will cost private sector U S Citizen workers that DO NOT have nearly the benefits federal employees have even now, private sector citizens already suffering all the other multiple adverse effects created all across the board by inept irresponsible government representatives, in aggregate, BILLIONS more dollars taken out of their paychecks each year.
At a time when noone in the United States can buy gasoline for under $4.00 a gallon, where even buying the most modest foods is becoming cost prohibitive, and those that need them, paying the outrageous cost of medicines and and paying outrageous utility bills...the citizens don't need more NEW tax burdens place on them to enhance the lives of federal employees that are already riding a gravy train.
