What does it take to fire a government worker? Act of God?
The headline reads: “Nobody loses job for water system failure.”
I say, Why not?
It seems to me it takes an act of God to dismiss any type of government employee, be it municipal, county, state or federal.
With the deaths of veterans in VA Hospitals, the staff received only reprimands; no one was fired.
State Department employees [were] killed in Libya, and there was only a statement issued by our last head of State, to wit, “What difference does it make?”
The IRS debacle gave us a bitter look at policy and allowed the head of the department to plead the Fifth. [The IRS] placed her on paid leave for snubbing her nose at Congress.
Jesse Jackson, Jr. is still getting a disability check monthly while still in jail. He is eligible for a congressional pension of $45,000; nice pay for a thief.
In conclusion, isn’t it about time we held people accountable for their actions?
