U.S. Senator Joni Ernst and watchdog organization OpenTheBooks demand transparency of federal payrolls.
Senator Ernst does what Mitch “Cocaine” CCP Colluder McConnell tells her to do! Good luck getting this information from the Corrupt and Criminal Politicians hellbent on Destroying America! The Freight Train is out of control heading down into the bottomless pit of Glacier Gulch! There is No Stopping it! I don’t care which politician you think has the interests of American citizens at heart, the people running the “electric train” across the Pacific Ocean are demonically possessed and could care less about We The People! The Uniparty of Politicians are your “friend” because all they want is your money and your vote! They care about NOTHING ELSE!
It's even worse. "149K govt workers owe back taxes".... NO government worker pays taxes. Yes, sure, their paycheck might have taxes taken out but where is that coming from? It (their salary & "taxes") comes from private sector (aka productive sector) citizens paying taxes (and/or paying thru inflation). WE are paying their taxes! The government worker only has the illusion they gross $100K and pay $20K in taxes, and net $80K.
Thank you for what you're doing!
This is at the heart of why our government has failed us.
Except for senior level (SFS) that’s regardless of how long they’ve been in position they get 8 hrs per pay period. 3 years and below is 13 days of AL, 3-15 years is 6 hrs per pay period so 19,5 days per year and 15 years and above 8 hrs per pay period is 26 days AL. People who had prior federal service (military included) go by the length of time of that prior service as it is taken into account.
And the IRS is looking for more help -- "Criminal Investigation Special Agents are part of a diverse workforce that mirrors the taxpaying public we serve."
Adhere to the highest standards of conduct, especially in maintaining honesty and integrity.
Work a minimum of 50 hours per week, which may include irregular hours, and be on-call 24/7, including holidays and weekends.
Maintain a level of fitness necessary to effectively respond to life-threatening situations on the job.
Be willing and able to participate in arrests, execution of search warrants, and other dangerous assignments.
Carry a firearm; must be prepared to protect him/herself or others from physical attacks at any time and without warning and use firearms in life-threatening situations; must be willing to use force up to and including the use of deadly force."
Idk, doesn't make me feel especially safe and secure.
I'm not worried about their salaries.
I'm worried that they have conflicts of interest linked to private corporations.
“In the Biden Administration 2022 payroll, 350,861 worker names are redacted. Under the Obama Administration, in FY 2016, that figure was 2,300. Stunning.” This is stunningly disgusting--corruption with no accountability 🤬
Jay Sekulow of the ACLJ, (American Center for Law and Justice) opened my eyes to this many years ago. He said that a huge percentage of Federal employees do little to no actual work. They simply show up occasionally and collect fat checks. Their received their positions as political favors, and when they became extraneous, they simply stayed on. I think Reagan said that there's no such thing as a temporary government position.
We know our government is chronically ill, but seeing the numbers makes us ill. What a corrupt, wasteful gang the public sector crime syndicate is!
The lack of transparency is STUNNING. Thank you for your continued efforts to shine the light!
The death of democracy is an unelected bureaucracy.
The real reason the bureaucrats want to control us. It’s a cushy gig. Wonder if the end of zero bound money will be the undoing of the administrative state.
