On today’s Your Turn” , John Hatton from the National Active and Retired Federal Employees  joins host Mike Causey to discuss Congress’ legislative agenda when it returns from its August recess.

It includes the possibility of an increase in Medicare Part B premiums, the potential for another government shutdown, and whether federal, military and Social Security retirees will get a cost of living adjustment next year.

NARFE is hoping to head off any Medicare premium hikes, and also derail a plan to reduce future COLAs for retirees.

Katie Maddocks, from the Federal Managers Association, will also join us to talk about the shutdown situation, the 2016 pay raise and allegations that there is an executive “hit list” at the Department of Veterans Affairs.

The show is live from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. ET at Federal News Radio or 1500 AM in the Washington area. If you want to call in during the show our number is 202-465-3080, or you can email questions to Mike before the show, at:
