DOUBLE DIPPERS COST TAXPAYERS PHENOMENALLY AND DRIVES
UP OUR UNEMPLOYMENT RATE FOR PEOPLE WHO NEED JOBS
For those of you who do not know what double dipping is, the following is a quick education into this ever growing abuse of our system:
First of all,
government employees enter into something called the DROP (Deferred Retirement Option Program). They stay in the DROP for five years and during that time, the government
continues to put money into a pot of gold at the end of the tunnel, you might say, by giving a lump sum of money at the end of the five years. The double dipping comes into play when
they are hired back, so now, they are not only receiving thousands of dollars a month in retirement checks, but they are also receiving thousands of dollars a month in salary.
Here is an example, which is included in the link below: Linda Dillon is a BIG time double dipper. Dillon retired from the Pasco Clerk's Office and Cutting's
opponent, Paula O'Neil, hired her back. Dillon gets about $117,000 a year in salary and thousands of dollars a month in retirement on top of her salary. Calling this GREED is an
Double dipping is not illegal, but very unethical and anyone who participates in it is just as unethical as the employee who is receiving double the amount for the same
job. In actuality,
the longer Paula O'Neil stays in office, the more she will be able to bulk people out of money when she enters into this double dipping greed phenomenon.
It is not a secret that double dippers is costing taxpayers millions of dollars. The news media honed in on that many times in news broadcasts and published articles.
See the news media articles below.
At a time when people need jobs and our government is overloaded with an astronimical amount of debt, double dippers compound the problems we all are facing with the economy the
way it is and Cutting's opponent, Paula O'Neil, is a participant, proponent, and supporter of double dippers as the links below prove.
Paula O'Neil is also circumventing our system by hiring subcontractors after they retired from the Pasco Clerk's Office. Technically, these subcontractors are not
considered double dippers, but they are re-hired as subcontractors after they have retired from the clerk's office.
