Looks like it.
“About as in-your-face as it gets, decreeing a pay raise heading into first sequestration followed immediately by hitting the debt ceiling.........”
Yep, I think this is simply Obama sending a big F.U. in the Republicans’ direction. It’s amazing that Obama is getting away with the things he’s getting away with.
The Constitution is a lot like paper money, when people stop valuing it, it is meaningless.
This was exactly what Nicolea Ceaucescu did when the crowd turned on him during his last speech. Obama is nothing but a dictator. Disgusting.
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.
Sorry. Didn’t mean to post twice. Got distracted. Oops.
Announcing pay raises was exactly what Nicolea Ceaucescu did when the crowd turned on him, during his last speech. Obama is nothing but a dictator. Disgusting
Govt by decree and a cult of personality instead of representative democracy.
Give them a new title and the compensation increase is a promotion-based increase, not a raise.
SCREW THESE ASSHOLES!!
IT’S WAY PAST TIME FOR A TAX REVOLT!!
CAPS LOCK ON PURPOSE!!
I agree! Me too!
I agree! Me too!
Oh, it is only $11b over 10 years. Don’t worry about it.
Worth repeating once more. lol
And they will continue to behave this way no matter what. I am beginning to believe they are all Democrats anyway. "What's his name" was not ideal, but it's all we had. Then of course Mr. & Mrs. FRAUD came out to play as well. I'm sure they are all happy their GUY won.
From my view of the “over $100,000” incomes from Bh0 are due to the “czars” and other political appointees he has made. Most of the government employees are well below that level, especially outside of DC, NYC, Cal: The following pay bands have not increased in the last 2-3 years:
GS-5 — 27431 to 35657; GS-6 — 30577 to 39748; GS-7 — 33979 to 44176; GS-8 — 37631 to 48917; GS-9 — 41563 to 54028; GS-10 — 45771 to 59505; GS-11 — 50287 to 65371; GS-12 — 60274 to 78355; GS-13 — 71674 to 93175; GS-14 — 84697 to 110104; GS-15 — 99628 to 129517
We could fire half the fed gov and would not even notice.
Lighten up Francis. It is a one half of one percent raise. This coming on the heels of a three year pay freeze. Given inflation, Federal employees actually make about six or seven percent less (in real dollars) then they did when Obama took office. Plus with the tax increases from Obama care and the increase in payroll taxes, the take home will again for the fourth year in a row go down. I know you think the whole Federal Government should shut down (like air traffic controllers, air marshals, NTSB, CIA, NSA, FBI, etc.) but lets not get too bent out of shape over a one half of one percent “raise”:
This is why Oboma is known as "The Welfare King". It's all he's ever known.
The sequence of these EOs on federal pay goes back aways.. Here they are in sequence starting with Obama’s today EO and through the Bush years..
