    that veterans are as poorly paid as these folks. People are always wanting money that could go to buy lovely things like airplanes, etc. Solution? Pay people as little as possible. Because we are just plain out of money! Think of all the poor people who are too cheap to pay federal income tax.

    I'm glad these people are striking because work deserves a living wage. I don't think the Pentagon or the House will agree.

      Capitalism demands a two class society. anyone that understands the agenda of the game monopoly should understand this. most dont. FDR did no demo has since.

      Give the repub donors credit they get much more for their money than the demo donors.

        positions...they're always bragging about how much harder they work than liberals, so let them put their work ethic to good use...then allow the strikers to have the same pay and benefits that members of congress enjoy...

        I'd rather see my tax dollars pay the strikers instead of conservative members of congress...and that includes the blue dog democrats.
