Posted on 12/28/2012 1:26:26 PM PST by House Atreides
President Barack Obama issued an executive order to end the pay freeze on federal employees, in effect giving some federal workers a raise. One federal worker now to receive a pay increase is Vice President Joe Biden.

How does this “pay freeze” info jive with other news stories we’ve seen that the number of government employees making over $100,000 has skyrocketed under Obama?
It's irrelevant. Congress hasn't bothered to check Barry's birth records, nor have they impeached Barry for the treason he's committed in the past.
Congress is not going to complain because Barry signed an E.O. stuffing their back pockets with more cash ripped off of taxpayers.
I say cut them all by 25% and if they whine, fire them.
The entire federal work force should be reduced BIG TIME!
The country is getting ready to go “off the fiscal cliff”, and this idiot gives pay raises????? IS HE NUTS????????? Obviously, the White House elitists don’t give a rats arse about what us common folk think about any of this. Geeze.
I agree. I’m a Fed employee who hasn’t had a pay raise in three years and this pi$$es me off too. Executive Order indeed. The Constitution requires all monetary bills to originate in The House of Representatives. Of course, that bunch ofeunuchs are following a “leader” who doesn’t have a clue!
Government union workers are where the laundered money for the Democrat party comes from, so that had to be increased to pay themselves back with more donations next election.
Government unions need ending.
This sets a precedent. The next president (if there is one) can slash the pay by royal decree.
That could be a quote from a German citizen back in the 30s.
As we all learned, it was ENTIRELY BELIEVABLE for some 12,000,000 their fellow citizens and over 20,000,000 others before Hitler sucked on tbe business end of a Walther PPK.
Let’ pitch in and buy one for Obozo.
Okay, now the Congress may begin to hold impeachment hearings for 0bama. He is willfully working to strangle the private sector by taxing small business owners out of existence while bolstering the power of unions and increasing hiring and salaries for LOCAL, PUBLIC, AND FEDERAL WORKERS..
OBVIOUS, ISN'T IT?
BIG GOVERNMENT IS CRONY SOCIALISM
OUTSTANDING thread BUMP! ONLY on FreeRepublic!
Especially the "non-essential" ones who take off time for any reason at all.
There are a lot of "non-essentials".
And who is going to pay for those pay raises? King BoRAT can’t help himself when it comes to spending other people’s money.
Please don’t tar and feather me for the question I’m about to ask, as I’m mentally fragile and the duck tape is not holding.
So staying home and not voting for the other candidate(who shall not be named) or protesting the stupidity of the Repubs and saying it doesn’t matter served us how?
I still think that we stood a chance of educating and changing minds if we all stuck together. Now, I don’t even care about this crap anymore. No need to get all nuts over this arrogance as there is nothing left to do but hunker down until they come for us. God,guns and ammo is all that we have left. And they are coming for that.
Walther P38. PPK was a police pistol. Yeah, but I get the point...
About as in-your-face as it gets, decreeing a pay raise heading into first sequestration followed immediately by hitting the debt ceiling. Any sane head of state would be furloughing employees in noncritical areas and clamping down wherever possible, even symbolically. As much of a silly fool as Jimmy Carter was and is, at least he knew how badly it came across to the taxpaying private sector. Obama just floors it and dares anyone to say a thing. He’s really out of control. With not a soul willing to do anything about it, apparently.
Has Congress abdicated the ability to spend money to the White House?
