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?""""".....

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

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.

I WISH we had a pay freeze! My husband had his pay CUT by 20% four years ago and we have had to adjust to that since then. We have never seen any of that come back and don’t expect to anytime soon.

Having just left federal service after more than 8 years, I can speak to the fact that the government is hemorrhaging their best employees left and right because of the pay freeze.

It isn’t the bad employees who leave. The best employees go. While I’m still working in a similar industry, most aren’t - and believe me, it significantly weakens national defense. Nobody cares if they think that some IRS stooge isn’t getting a pay raise. I think they might sit up and take notice if they realized trained engineers are leaving once-prominent federal research and defense agencies because of a perpetual pay freeze.

One federal worker now to receive a pay increase is Vice President Joe Biden.

Does this mean that Joe Biden is no longer in the middle class as he repeatedly told voters at rallies in 2012?

I don't understand. His administration is rewriting the rules for measuring the CPI to show that there is no inflation. The new rules make the assumption that as people can no longer afford steak, they will switch to chicken, and those who can no longer afford chicken will switch to spam, and those for whom spam is now out of reach can eat cake, so see? No inflation.

Given that there's no inflation, what is the rationale for a federal worker pay increase? Sure as sh*t the seniors aren't going to see any COLA.

Yes, but those executive orders followed Congressional action authorizing a certain level of pay raise. Once that happened then the President decided how much of the authorized/specified raise would be allocated to “locality pay”.

I may have missed it, but I do not recall Congressional action passing this pay raise. Perhaps it was done recently and buried in some of the limited legislation that got through the Senate’s inaction.

Over 150,000 search and rescues have been conducted in the National Parks since 1872.

233 National Park Employees have died while on duty:

http://www.nps.gov/jotr/parknews/ohlfs.htm And this is not just law enforcement; for the most part these folks are regular people.

Most of the people conducting these rescues are frontline NPS employees, making gs-9 to gs-11 pay: 50k to 60k per year, which considering the high cost of living in and around the major national parks is a pretty good bargain. (Try to purchase groceries or go to the nearest Walmart when you work at the Grand Canyon and you will see how quickly the cost of living can eat up a budget.)

From 1992 to 2007 there were 78,488 individuals involved in 65,439 search and rescue incidents. These incidents ended with 2659 fatalities, 24,288 ill or injured individuals, and 13,212 saves. On average there were 11.2 search and rescue incidents each day.

Without the presence of NPS personnel responding to search and rescue incidents, 1 in 5 (20%) of those requesting search and rescue assistance would be a fatality.

Search and Rescue Reports for just one park:

Then you should know that the raises were halted by executive order, therefore he has the authority to restore them by executive order. The real constitutional question is if someone has the authority to halt congressionally manadated raises by executive order.

*******************************************************************
Several years ago Obama wanted to beat Congress to the punch and PROPOSED a federal civilian employee pay freeze. Congress said sure, and didn’t propose a pay raise for the past three years.

There are no automatic annual federal employee pay raises so there are no automatic pay raises to “halt by executive order”. As part of the annual appropriations process, Congress will include a certain amount of money for federal pay raises (along with specifying how big [percentage increase] that pay increase should be) IF IT IS SO INCLINED. It HAS NOT been so inclined in recent years.

You very well may know more of the details of this process than I do, but please post a link to some documentation showing that this current Congress has passed a pay raise for 2013.

Yup, it’s the Republican controlled House that’s the BIG elephant in the room. Shame on Boehner for all he has allowed this President to do since the GOP gained control in 2010. The truth is, the Republicans no longer deserve to keep the House. If I feel this way as much as I dislike Nancy Pelosi I know millions of other feel this way.

At this point I see a super majority happening in 2014.

I think this is exactly what Boehner wants. Less work for him if the GOP is the minority party.

We all know Obama HATES America and the Constitution. Knowing that, can you blame him for taking advantage of the do nothing Republicans?

Based on what the ‘leadership’ has done recently (folding like a lawn chair on every damn thing coming down the pipe), exactly how ‘banding together’ would have been any different??

The GOP would still not have the Senate and these ‘problems’ would still be on their plate. So nothing would still get ‘done’, the media would still be blaming the GOP and the GOP would still be bending over for their ankles ‘cuz they were called bad names. There’s no real fight to reduce ANY part of gov’t coming from the GOP; no real plan (oh, the 5/10yr. models...SURE).

I’ll even contend, w/ the CT shooting, Mitt would be on the forefront for new gun laws and possibly even another AWB bill. So, again, what difference would it have been??

But, don’t worry that D.C. is the fastest growing employer, the largest $$ shift in the country, etc. It’s not like they can’t just PRINT more, eh?!

About as in-your-face as it gets,...

Only my guess, but it seems to me that this is just a test to see how far he can go. Expect similar "Executive Orders" regarding guns, medical care, retirement accounts, etc. to follow rapidly in the next term. Issuance is probably going to accelerate so as accomplish the real goal of "fundamentally reshaping America." Just how fundamental most people have no clue.

If the House doesn't exercise their power, they'll lose it through precedent.

The Republicans could stop this very easily.

Do not vote to raise the debt limit. That would shut this crap down in a heartbeat. They hold the purse strings.

If Obama tries to go over them and go against the Constitution, they can impeach him. This insanity stops when the petty little dictator is stopped.

The reason Obama continues to pull this over and over is because he is being allowed to do so. The Republicans are to blame by continually funding the travesty.

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?

Most of the worker bees make $35K - $75K. The $100K+ folks are the good commies that help create/enforce the unlawful laws/regulations/etc.

I can’t say that what you bring to the table is inaccurate. Mittens was a lib as well. However, I still believe even with the media in the tank we stood a better chance of folks like Rand Paul and Ted Cruz having a bigger voice because we(us) would have had a bigger voice, liberal media or not.
We would have been bolder and more outspoken if we were to win. The crybaby speaker of the house would have caught crap a bit louder everytime he screwed up. As it stands now, I am done with Parties. Best to stay “neutral” on paper.

But alas, not to be....can’t keep whining over “what could have beens” and best to work with the reality that we are in.

There is a lump running my former project. I don’t believe he has ever had the skills to manage an engineering project, which explains why it’s six months and counting behind schedule. All he’s going to end up doing is further destroying the image of the research facility where I worked, turning it into a punchline. I know because he’s all that’s left after almost every competent engineer under the age of 40 left to go elsewhere.

The link to the EO cited above in post #90 should have the following link not the Legislation link I cited. Sorry for the screw up.

Obama Executive Order.

This will please tens of millions of “American” citizens who never met a federal bureaucrat they didn’t like.

Somebody correct me if I’m wrong...based on 2012 tables...this is a .499% percent increase for GS employees right?

With millions of Americans out of work and or who had their salaries and hours cut, who can feel sorry for those making over 100k a year not getting a raise?

“226 members of Mr Obama’s staff are apparently paid over $100,000 - and the President can increase their salaries at any time.

And even the Obamas’ dog Bo costs the taxpayer thousands of dollars - his handler is reportedly paid over $100,000 a year.

Moreover, much of the money spent on Mr Obama’s family goes to perks such as entertainment and household expenses.

For example, the White House contains a movie theatre which is manned by projectionists 24 hours a day in case one of the family feels like a trip to the cinema.”

Obama family ‘costs taxpayers $1.4BILLION per year’ (that’s 20 times more expensive than British Royal Family)

sickening

Got it — looks like Obama was acting within the law. This whole thing was kept very low-key and was executed very quietly. Thanks for the research.

Not really, they are quite blatant about their communism and in communism the rich are always the ones who work for the government. This is what the morons in this country wanted and this is what they got...and he’s just getting started. 1,430 more days to go.

That’s exactly why liberals and their “tax the rich” argument can go to hell. Tax the rich for what? So schmucks like this guy can blow through $1.4 billion instead of that money being used to invest in companies to create JOBS? Can you imagine how many jobs that money could create? What kind of company could be created with that kind of money invested?

I saw that movie Lincoln the other night with my Dad, very good movie if you haven’t seen it yet. What struck me about it was how Lincoln although he was President lived as just another ordinary citizen. He would hang out in the telegraph office like any other employee, or go for walks by himself or ride in a carriage with his wife and nobody else. None of this royalty BS. No closing down 300 city blocks with a 500 people entourage so he can party with Jay-Z, no mega-concerts celebrating how great he is. To me what seems to have happened is todays politicians have taken advantage of the threat of assassination, used it as an excuse to blow through wads of money and to me this Obama is the worst out of all of them.

Back in the day a politician did his term then went back to being an ordinary citizen. Now most are self serving.
