I am a retired civil service employee living on my retirement. I am also providing for daughter who works part time in the school system. My husband passed away 5 years ago. He worked for 40+ years as an engineer and manager for private industry and fifteen years for civil service. He was able to draw social security and a small retirement for CS. When he passed away, I was unable to get any social security and a check for only $800. from his CS retirement.
While I consider myself fortunate, I am frightened by the state of this country's economy. I, and my children and grandchildren depend on my monthly check.
Please don't increase my taxes. I did without pay increases during my employment because Congress voted on partial payment to CS employees. I can't afford to have that happen now.
