    The service that is provided is slowed by the workers performing the customer services; job security. This furloughs should have been introduced many years ago, or have a "production manager" monitor the workers customer service. You can't make government workers more productive, because that would be considered "discrimination".

    'Beginning Monday, all appropriated funded civilian employees — those whose jobs are paid by funding from Congress — are required by law to take 11 discontinuous unpaid days off through Sept. 27."

    "From the top down
    The furloughs are the result of sequestration combined with the continuing budget resolution to fund the military and a shortfall of funding for the Afghanistan war, according to the Defense Department."

    After all, the furloughs should start "from the top down"!!

    There is a shortfall of funding for the Afghanistan war...I have an idea...stop sending our military and equipment over to Afghanistan...BRING OUR MEN AND WOMEN HOME!
    So we fund the war to help the people of Afghanistan...WHY DON'T WE FUND THE AMERICAN PEOPLE!

    When our country is falling apart...why is the president's family taking expensive trips. There are AMERICANS going hungry.
