Guam - Congresswoman Madeleine Bordallo says President Barack Obama's proposal to freeze federal wages for two years in one initiative that congress will consider. Bordallo says it will assist in their focus to minimize the nation's budget deficit.
She wrote, "It is important that we ensure a balance between fiscal discipline and the need to retain a quality federal workforce. Although federal workers may feel singled out by this proposal, I believe that more budget cuts are forthcoming, and the President's concept of shared sacrifice will be more clearly understood when he delivers his Fiscal Year 2012 budget to Congress."
