There is no inflation...the Labor Department said so.
Considering the abysmal labor participation rate — a pay CUT would make a lot more sense.
I propose a 20 percent pay cut.
Democrats buying votes with our money.
Treat them like the “other” federal workers in the military.
on the same day that they announce pay and benefits cuts to the military. Yet, these RATS keep getting reelected.
Now you're thinking like a Democrat.
Well done - you should run for office.
Too be 'fair', the DemonRats have a long history of keeping the Military ballots from being tallied (along with other acts of voter fraud).... And, of course, the Republicans have a long history of not doing anything about it.

“already over paid.”
And many of them (especially those in the DC, Maryland, Northern Virgina area) are VASTLY overpaid—to say nothing of being under worked.
0bungu will pay these leeches (you could fire half these porn surfers and no one would notice) with the money he takes from our military
How many snow days off did they get so far?
I’d even go for this if there were a corresponding 1% improvement in productivity, a 1% decrease in discretionary spending...something...
But no. “It’s Government”.
I think in these tough economic times you need to show where the responsibility lies and set an example for everyone. I propose a fifty percent cut in pay and benefits for the President down to Congress and that includes all of the aides that have helped them screw up the economy. For your regular fed employee no increase or cut, for the military a restoration of all benefits and 5% increase. For each budget year that spending increases the executive and legislative branch receive another ten percent cut in pay. I bet we'd clean house awful friggin fast.
They should get at least a 25% cut!!!
“... you’re thinking like a Democrat ...”
Is that on TOP of the existing built in cost of living increases....?
[ Democrats buying votes with our money. ]
When the public can vote themselves largress, then we are screwed... or so said one of those founders with powdered whigs and wooden teeth...
Does anyone care what it will cost to increase the salaries by 1 per cent in just sheer labor time to input the changes. Kind of like the refund check I got from IRS a couple of years ago in the amount of $1.31 for over payment of interest.
They know they will never get the majority of military votes, so throw them to the wolves. But increase the number of federal warriors and give them more money......
That is 21 percent more than most of them deserve.
Hmmm...1%? Even if they’re getting 30 bucks an hour, that’s 30 cents. Big deal.
I propose each fed “worker” having to justify whatever they get to a public panel.
Well, Dear Reader’s payola to his buddies and core supporters has to come from somewhere.
I propose that all government workers count off, and all odd numbers be fired. Then count off again......
Is this”Good Politics”,Obongo?????????????????
.... Of course ... While at the same time gutting the US military because this Banana Republic tin horn dictator can't see anywhere else in this administrations ever growing bloated budget comprised of massive amounts of every imaginable type of socialist special interest funding to make any kind of cuts to his pet projects could he!!! He is plundering this countries wealth with no concern for the coming consequences.
.... This administration's priorities are not comprised of anything founded in true American ideals.

Is he going to give private sector workers $50/ month as well? Funny my private sector income keeps going down...down...down.
Obama is taking from me and giving it to someone else.
Davis Bacon wages for min skilled jobs is still about $57/hr.
Obama introduced his Min Wage for Fed contract positions at about $10.50/hr, meaning the mechainisms are in place to reduce their wages from %57 to $10.50, with a py increase of 1%, now allows $10.61 for a previous $57/hr job,...and politically to the majority of readers, he has hiked their wages twice.
.....and union members still think he’s a great guy.
Why? Are they really underpaid???
Vote buying. Simple enough.
Next year? Ooh, love me, want me, adore me.......and vote for my comrades in November.
Davis Bacon is a misleading value. I’ve made those “wages” before. Over half of that pays for benefits - insurance, employer healthcare insurance, retirement, etc. Those guys make about 20-25 dollars an hour. When they get a pay increase like this, they get it to the hourly amount they make, not the whole package.
At a minimum, think of the difference in First Lady’s, and I don’t mean their skin color.
