“Federal employees who were furloughed through no fault of their own should be paid,” said Senator Mikulski. “Dedicated civil servants should not be scapegoats for the decisions of politicians. They should be paid retroactively and I believe they should be paid in a timely way. I oppose this Tea Party shutdown. I am for cuts. I have reformed spending. I have initiated cuts. I believe we need a more frugal, efficient federal government. But it can't be done through serial CRs on the back of federal employees.”
Hey, Ms. Mikulsi, the unemployed and 99ers lost their jobs through "no fault of their own"! What about us? We are the BIGGEST scapegoats for politicians - pay us in a timely way too!
