    Default QUESTION! Do government employees have HEALTH INS during their 'vacation'?

    I have no idea. If you aren't 'compensated' and your insurance is tied to 'compensation' is it in suspense as well? I heard a government worker in a call to C-span (?) said she is rationing her INSULIN. (If you are on insulin you do NOT ration it). And in a less excited voice than I would have had, said she is just "hoping to wake up in the morning."

    That's scary!
    SEP 2016: Obama asked McConnell to co-write a LETTER of CONDEMNATION of Russian interference
    into the upcoming election and to alert US. The CIA DIR
    had briefed BOTH parties Congr'l leaders of the same.

    McConnell told Brennan,
    “You’re trying to screw the Republican nominee.”

    McCONNELL REFUSED to sign the letter.

    The rest is history!

    I don't know. And I don't care.

    This is why people should have 6 months of expenses saved up in a rainy day fund. Let this be a lesson to them.

    Here is a thought, since you care so much about her, well at least enough to post about it on an anonymous message board. Maybe you can reach out and buy her insulin for her? Just a thought. You know, since you claim to care so much

    Here is a thought

    Why don't Tom Steyer, Warren Buffett, Bill Gates, George Soros and all of those other billionaire leftists who claim to want to do good for people band together and help these gobblement workers?

    Just a thought

    Of course not. And of course you don't.

    Have you started a GoFundMe for them?

    Have you reached out and offered to buy her some insulin?

    And I should have to do this for a FULL TIME COVERED federal employee, why? So you guys BITCH and MOAN when people aren't employed and then BLAME them, or ME, when they are employed--but get laid off. What are your criterion?

    Or just like to BEAT people up?

    I am saying that if you really cared about what happened to this lady you would help her out. But apparently your compassion stops at the governments edge

    For most people, their insurance will be unaffected if they are federal employees. They will just get the premiums for current coverage deducted from their checks at a rate of one current premium and one back premium per month (So if the government were shut down 6 months, it would be collected back as an additional insurance premium each month for the first 6 months when checks resume). People who work as contractors will be billed directly as they are not part of the federal employee pool.

    Yes. They have health insurance coverage.
