Dear Colleague & Vote No Letters to Congress
Updated On: Feb 13, 2013


see attached two letters to Congressmen from their Colleague's Mr. Connolly & Mr. Cummings & Mr. Wolf.

Mr. Wolf seeks ALL to vote NO on HR 273 and says it quite nicely "...this bill is nothing more than a political stunt that targets the hardworking dedicated men and women of the civil service, who have already had their salaries frozen for more than two years"...

and Mr. Connolly & Mr. Cummings letter asks members of congress to extend the current pay freeze for themselves, Members of Congress, and not federal employees through 2013...we don't know the bill number just yet as it has not been assigned since it is being dropped in the hopper today...stay tuned...thanks, Terry
