Are federal workers the debt deal’s biggest losers?

President Obama’s deal with congressional leaders to raise the federal debt limit may have provided some relief for a nation on the brink of default, but the deal did produce winners and losers. The biggest losers may be federal workers.

The Post’s Joe Davidson and Eric Yoder chatted with readers July 27 about what could happen to federal employees if the government shut down. Today at 12:30 p.m. ET, Davidson and Yoder are back to live chat with readers about how federal workers will be affected by Sunday night’s debt-limit deal.
