I would love to know what "federal managers" are actually pushing to eviscerate FECA benefits as opposed to private insurance companies taking a long view towards figuring out how to privatize and make money off of others' misfortune. As the Obama administration is on the record supporting the stripping of benefits from FECA, and with the changes in Congress in the last midterm elections, this could quickly gain traction. I will update as I learn more.

The federal workers compensation system administered by OWCP could certainly use some reform, but simply reducing the level of benefits and making it harder to receive benefits is not in the interest of federal employees, nor the unnamed "federal managers" who supposedly support this action, as opposed to private interests and their lobbying staffs who simply want to shrink the federal government any way possible.
