And again from your comment above:

WHY?? Because the Constitution allows Congress to do so. The "GOVERNMENT" is made up of FEDERAL PERSONNEL.

USC Title 5, 552(a)
(13) the term “Federal personnel” means officers and employees of the Government of the United States, members of the uniformed services (including members of the Reserve Components), individuals entitled to receive immediate or deferred retirement benefits under any retirement program of the Government of the United States (including survivor benefits).
What is the difference between a marine or an officer of the Government, and a person that has a Social Security retirement membership in the above definition? NOTHING, they are all FEDERAL PERSONS.

Now, ask yourself one question: What is the difference between all those examples of "Federal Personnel" above, and you? If you are considered an officer, or an employee, member of the uniformed services, and entitled to receive retirement benefits, then why aren't you getting paid like all the other "Federal Personnel"?

Doesn't everyone else who's considered to be "Federal Personnel" have a Social Security No. and a Drivers License?

So why is the government employee working downtown at the DMV getting paid, and you're not?
