yes you deserve both
No, get only your cushy gov retirement.
Actually, I'm not laughing all the way to the bank because of my retirement pension, nor will I be stumbling if the government can no longer fund them. Unlike people who just want to whine about others utilizing gross exaggerations as if they're the norm, I actually give a damn about the notion of Personal Responsibility. Beyond my government pension, I'm also heavily investing into my Thrift Savings Program (government equivalent of a 401K) as well as investing along with my wife in a private IRA complete separate from either of our jobs. Not out of our 30's yet, we've already put down a plan for a reasonable 20 years of retirement without taking Social Security or my government pension into account. IF those things that we'll be paying into for decades actually still exist in some form by the time I retire, then that'll be bonus on top. But I worry about myself and making sure my family and I will be okay rather than jealously worrying about exaggerated situations others may have.It will destroy our economy and all you retired or soon to be retired gov employees laughing all the way to the bank won't have much to laugh about when your entire retirement check plus your SS check won't buy a loaf of bread.

It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.

The thing that most people don't understand is that most government workers pay into their pension program. It is not a freebie given to them. As for SS....you still have to meet the minimum quarters of work over and above your government service in order to be eligible for SS and the amount you receive is reduced due to the pension you receive.
Women (Nasty or otherwise) are going to be the reason that Donald Trump is NEVER President!
