Obama's Budget A Hit Job On Federal Workers

Federal unions say President Barack Obama's budget proposal is a "hit" on federal workers. The president has renewed a call for feds to pay 1.2 percent more of their salaries to retirement. The American Federation of Government Employees says that's a "sop to the right wing" who want to see greater cuts to federal benefits. The National Treasury Employees Union says the measure fails to recognize the sacrifice feds are making with a two-year pay freeze. But President Colleen Kelley says she's glad Obama didn't call for extending that freeze.
