  •  So, that would be CSRS and FERS... (0+ / 0-)

    My dad is retired on CSRS. When I hear about this, I get a little concerned that his retirement might be in jeopardy if this were to go on for awhile. But, I'm more concerned with his morale.

    You see his dad died after he retired when a couple of rat bastards business men bought the company that he had worked at for 30 years as an accountant and decided it was more profitable to break it up and sell off the pieces. As result of that, he lost the generous pension he had contributed to and was forced to work at service station pumping gas to get by. Being a diabetic in poor health, he was dead a year later of a heart attack and within a year his wife followed him to the grave as a result of cancer that she had neglected until it was too far advanced for treatment. So, greed killed them.

    I just hope that these Republican Kochsuckers republicans with their bottomless lust for power doesn't do the same to my dad.
