Skip to comments.Obama Orders Raise for Biden, Members of Congress, Federal Workers
Posted on 12/28/2012 10:45:48 AM PST by ColdOne
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.
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.

what about the little people Obama?
Gotta give all the government workers a raise to offset your tax hike when we go off the cliff eh?
Socialism. Equal parts dumb and evil, in a blender.
there will be no “coming up for air” allowed.
just enough to cover the tax increase?
Fiscal cliff? How about a little bump in pay for us all?!
(Who wants to bet this gets buried in the MSM like a cat buries a turd?)
Give pay increases to the only segment of the work force that has increased under his rule. While they should be happy that they have a job, the rest of us who have had to take pay cuts or have lost our jobs now have to reward them! I think that the President on down through Congress should have to take a fifty percent cut in pay and benefits until this country is back on track. If they were employed by a private business they would have all been fired for incompetence.
Government workers don’t pay taxes..................
My Dad used to tell me “It doesn’t pay to be an idiot”. He was wrong.
This will include the Supreme Court and other Federal judges. Any doubt now of they make their decisions?
How the hell can he do that???
Those chuckleheads in Washington, D.C. never surprise me.
This is a sop to the federal employee unions that overwhelmingly supported Obama.
And the MSM will never let the public know. This communists empire has America in the toilet and we may never get out of the flush.
Yippee! Spend! Take! Steal Some More! Spend More! Take More! Steal Some More! Yippee!!!!!!!!
Happy New Year!
That is not correct.
Government workers don’t pay taxes? Where did you hear that?
“Government workers dont pay taxes..................
That is not correct.”
It all depends on how you look at it. It is really nothing more than a shell game. They are paid with tax dollars from the actual workers of the country. The “payment” of taxes by government workers is a silly little accounting trick where they government pays them a tad less since it was all tax money to begin with.
They pay taxes from their share of the tax money they collect as salaries.
