Rokita Out to Destroy Civil Servant Union Representation

Rep. Todd Rokita
Last seen trying to take food out of the mouths of school children, Congressman Todd Rokita is back with the innocuous soundng Promote Accountability and Government Efficiency Act.  

The devil is often in the details when it comes to bills, as I've said before, and that's defintely true with the PAGE Act.  In fact, as reported by postalnews.com, Rokita's bill would kill union representation for newly-hired civil servants such as postal workers by making them "at-will" employees who "may be removed or suspended, without notice or right to appeal, from service by the head of the agency at which such employee is employed for good cause, bad cause, or no cause at all."

I'll give you a moment.

Ready to move on yet?

Another moment then...because there's more.

The bill would also make it impossible for a civl servant to qualify for a raise without reaching a certain performance level.  In essence, performance pay.  We recently saw how that worked for teachers in Indiana, didn't we?

I have an idea for Todd in his next campaign.  Why doesn't he run on his record of taking on the scourge of feeding children and paying civil servants?  Don't forget calling elderly Americans "piggish" and "Un-American" for expecting their social security and Medicare coverage.  

If Rokita ran on that record, maybe we could get someone in that seat that actually cares about individuals over ideology.  I can't imagine many of the people that mindlessly elect this guy know much about him.

Thanks for reporting this Mr. Easter! I have been doing some checking and surprisingly he could only get one co sponsor when he introduced the PAGE Act last year! Rep. Chaffetz Chairman of the Government Oversight Committee doesn't seem eager to make all Feds at will! Rokita is probably throwing this out there for publicity!
