The congressional Super Committee has received several proposals to reduce the federal deficit with more pay freezes and less benefits for federal employees and a smaller federal workforce overall.

Specifically, there are proposals in both the House and Senate to eliminate benefits that help make federal jobs a magnet for good candidates - good pay, steady work, rare cutbacks and solid health insurance and pension benefits.
