The Republican-controlled House has passed the “Federal Employee Retroactive Pay Fairness Act” to provide “for compensation of federal employees furloughed due to any lapse in appropriations that begins on or about October 1, 2013, for the period of such lapse in appropriations.” The vote was 417-0. This means that every Republican in the House that voted (13 Republicans did not vote), voted for the bill. Forget all their talk about fiscal conservatism, reining in government spending, eliminating unnecessary government programs and agencies, limited government, etc., etc., etc. The Republican Party is pure evil (just like the Democratic Party). It cannot be reformed. It cannot be taken over. It cannot be made libertarian. It cannot be restored. It should be abandoned. There is no difference between the parties when it comes to our life, liberty, and property.
No, I have absolutely no sympathy whatsoever for overpaid, underworked, and unecessary federal workers, 95 percent of whom help carry out unconstitutional activities of the federal government.8:17 am on October 7, 2013 Email Laurence M. Vance
