WASHINGTON (AP) — While conservative GOP governors are demanding concessions from state workers, House Republicans are making federal employees the next target.

Republicans at a House hearing on Wednesday complained that the 2.1 million-strong federal work force is overpaid compared with workers holding similar private sector jobs.

The personnel chief for federal workers cried foul. He said many of them earn too little.

Competing witnesses and House members threw out one statistic after another to fit their descriptions of an overpaid or underpaid government work force. In a larger sense, the hearing was part of Republican demands for cutbacks in Obama administration programs and spending.
