"We know just how intense the right’s contempt for government workers is. A bipartisan proposal to present a flag at the funeral of federal workers killed in the line of duty was stopped dead in its tracks after Red State blogger [and CNN contributor] Erick Erickson denounced the bill as the "Flags for Bureaucrats Act." 
And I guess we now know that these people - all federal workers, all killed in the line of duty on 9/11 - aren’t heroes. They’re just bureaucrats, undeserving of a symbolic gesture of national gratitude.
I know it’s easy to demonize bureaucrats and government workers as shiftless, but as a son of two public servants who have worked their entire careers to make people’s lives better, all without much in the way of recognition, I know it’s a cheap lie. I know the people that do it ought to be ashamed, Erick Erickson.” - Chris Hayes, in his debut MSNBC show, “Up with Chris Hayes”

    According to Ann Coulter all civil servants are just drains on the economy. She by the way is a drain on life.
