Because they fired themselves

Just like they hired themselves . . .

During a teletown hall Thursday evening hosted by Rep. Ted Yoho, a caller named Frank from Gainesville asked about furloughed workers.

“The people that had to work should be paid,” Frank said. “But the people that are home watching Netflix and whatever, I’m not sure that we should be sending them checks.”

Replied Yoho: “Well, when we voted on that they were supposed to come back to work as part of that deal. … I agree 100 percent with you. If they’re not working, they shouldn’t get paid.”

Ah Florida, my Florida . . . had enough? You bet.

  1. They WILL be Paid…..

    It’s NOT their fault the knucklheads shut down the government because they where entertaining 20 to 30 members of the Conservative Army….



  2. And this is what the future would look like for all federal workers if the president were to accede to government by extortion. Want a steady income? Find a different job.


  3. Yoho and friends are getting paid…what work are they doing! They only work 40% of the time…their pay should be reduced to reflect the hours put in.


  4. No work should equal no pay; it’s that simple for anyone not caught up in useless hatred of the GOP.

    If they were private sector workers we wouldn’t be even discussing this and public sector workers deserve no special treatment when it comes to management making decisions that put them out of work.


  5. If they aren’t going to be paid (that’s unlikely I think), then they out to qualify for unemployment at the least. After all they’re not home watching Netflix by choice.


    • Assuming that follows all the normal rules for such things, I agree 100%. I don’t particularly hate most of these federal workers; I just can’t see where they should be treated differently and better than normal workers.
