Bonus Christmas Holiday?

For many long-time federal workers, the horror du jour isn't sequestration-triggered furloughs or layoffs. Nor are the vets particularly worried that the next Congress might actually impose some of the draconian cuts the current Congress failed to enact.

Experienced civil servants, who have lived through a variety of changes, reforms and streamlining efforts, realize that their benefits have been threatened before — in some cases, for decades — without any changes being made.

Survivors of the federal service know that politicians talk a lot but are easily distracted. Usually by unforeseen domestic and foreign events, like hurricanes and revolutions.
