Further more, federal employee pay has zero to do with it as their pay has been frozen for 2 years now. Even though their pay has not been part of the increased budget, they are the ones who pay the price through furlough.

Bingo!! No pay raise in 2 years, yet my health insurance goes up and no telling how much it will go up this year. And now I am on my first day of an 11 day furlough. DW is also being furloughed. I finally figured out how much we're going to be out, and it's a chunk of change! We will survive. i might not be able to pay off my credit card every month, but that's ok. We will only charge what we need to charge, if anything.

Moochell, I mean Marie, will continue to spit in our faces.
