AFGE Statement on Fiscal Cliff Deal

WASHINGTON American Federation of Government Employees National President J. David Cox Sr. today issued the following statement in response to the fiscal cliff deal:


While we are glad to see a bill that requires the wealthiest Americans begin to pay a fairer share of taxes, AFGE members are very concerned about the use of additional agency funding cuts in order to pay for the delay of the sequester. How agencies will achieve these amounts is not clear in the language of the bill. Before they look any further at unpaid furloughs or other cuts to critical agency programs, OMB should sharply reduce the amount taxpayers provide to federal contractors for excessive salaries for their top executives.
