Skip to comments.Obama Orders Pay Raise for Biden, Members of Congress, Federal Workers
Posted on 12/28/2012 3:01:46 PM PST by SMGFan
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.

Yes it’s Friday evening in Washington.
Predictable, not this per se, just the timing.
hey, if you want good people, you have to pay them well/s
Wow, a vote on the trillion dollar deficit can be bought for 900 borrowed dollars per.
As the old story about the hooker goes..."Now that we know you can be bought, we just have to negotuate on the price."
negotuate = negotiate
if it was performance-based they’d all take a serious pay cut.
While the old folks on Social Security slip further back with a paltry thirty buck increase next year. yippeeee.
I thought vote buying was against the law.
Does that include the four State Dept. employees who were shuffled around to other jobs in an effort to pretend 0bunghole did something about Benghazi? /rhetorical question
Thank GOD these Aholes are ONLY giving us $179,000 worth of their time and efforts! Imagine how Screwed up America and our economy would be if they were working at, say, the $358,000 level of productivity!!?
(Merry Ramadan and a very Happy Kwanza to ye All!)
.........I’m coming to the conclusion, and these guys (The 535) are proving it right, that democracy does not work and cannot work in this day and time due to an untreatable cancer called institutional corruption otherwise also known as “incumbency”. Soicalists and Marxists hell bent on buying votes partner up with liberal media and incestuously with each other and voila!........almost overnight, we have socialist/marxist America and 17 Trillion dollars in debt that can NEVER be paid off to say nothing of the 50 odd Trillion of contingency liabilities and debts. I repeat NEVER, no matter if God himself steps in! Where once there was a Demoratic Party and a Republican party and a little bit of “honor”, now there is one party and it is a snakes pit!
So,brace yourself! “Default” is coming. It is only a matter of when and what level of violence will attach to such a defualt. Most Americans are buying guns and obviously betting it will be very high! Moody’s said last week that it’s definition of “default” was when ONE federal obligation did not get paid due to lack of funds. Well, when “default” happens, 57 or so million people on the federal teat are going to get the teat pulled away, and they are going to be hungry quick and pissed!
What we need is something different than the design in 1776. It is no longer working. We need to abolish the House and Senate and have a Domestic President and a separate Co President for Foreign Affairs and the Military.
They wouold be elected every 4 years and could only serve two terms. Then several other basics would have to be put in place and that is that the Federal Government could not borrow money without two thirds of states approving it! I could think of a lot of others but will stop here! Basically,in street parlance, Democracy sucks! There has gotta be a better way!
Oh, and the media giants all have to be broken up, like Comcast, the biggest one. It doesn’t even have a board of directors to govern it. The kid that inherited it is a big buddy with Obama and Michelle, according to him!
