Default Obama Orders Raise for Biden, Members of Congress, Federal Workers

Remember that pay freeze Congress passed?...The last extension was in September for six months...

Quote:
The White House said at the time that the pay freeze would save $2 billion for the remainder of fiscal year 2011, $28 billion over the next five years, and more than $60 billion over the next 10 years.
Over ten years?...Funny...

I only count "two" years...

Time for the wealth re-distributor to do his part...

Obama Orders Raise for Biden, Members of Congress, Federal Workers

Quote:
According to disclosure forms, Biden made a cool $225,521 last year. After the pay increase, he'll now make $231,900 per year.

Members of Congress, from the House and Senate, also will receive a little bump, as their annual salary will go from $174,000 to 174,900. Leadership in Congress, including the speaker of the House, will likewise get an increase.

Here's the list of new wages, as attached to President Obama's executive order:



"A new executive order has been issued providing for a new pay schedule beginning 'on the first day of the first applicable pay period beginning after March 27, 2013,'" reports FedSmith.com. "The pay raise will generally be about 1/2 of 1%."
So when the White House said it would save $28 billion over the next five years, and more than $60 billion over the next 10 years, they forgot to add "but we're not going to do it"...

Give a Democrat baboon 100 dollars for Christmas, and he will say you're 900 dollars short.

Yep, the little guys are struggling to make ends meet, yet the bozo in the White House who takes million dollar vacations and plays golf at every opportunity thinks everyone in the federal gov. needs a ****ing raise.

Usually, in the real world, employees are docked pay or fired for not doing their job.
