" for new federal government hires starting in 2013"
"Current federal government employees and retirees would not be impacted by the changes in the Burr-Coburn bill."
Sounds fine to me, since it would apply only to new hires starting in 2013, if passed and made into law. So any prospective Federal employees would know what they are getting into before they start. I don't see it as a benefit cut, because before they accept the job, they have no benefit.
" But the only responsible thing to do is stop making irresponsible commitments and forcing future generations to pick up the tab,” said Dr. Coburn." WHAT A CONCEPT!!!
