You won't believe this.
NRSC | Senate Republicans

Posted on 05/11/2014 7:26:34 PM PDT by ObamahatesPACoal

Friend,

You’re not going to believe this, but it's true.

We’ve got a national debt that’s out of control, $17 trillion and climbing. Yet, John Kerry just gave foreign workers at the State Department a 42% raise. 42%! When was the last time you got a raise like that?

The Obama Administration is simply out-of-touch with the challenges facing American taxpayers like you and me.

Sincerely,

Senate Republicans

The old mafia tactic of making sure everybody is complicit in the crime so no body talks.

Raising the minimum wage to 10.10/hour is around a 40% raise.

Lots less people gonna be working. Think it’s hard to find a job now? Just wait.

From your link, South40...

UPDATE: A State Department official, requesting anonymity, writes in to revise the original statement:

“This reference to 42% applies only to the local staff at the embassy in Ethiopia. After a three year wage freeze economic conditions in various countries around the world have resulted in varying increases to a number of U.S. embassies. U.S. law requires that embassies compensate their local employees according to prevailing practice. So while Ethiopia will receive an increase, along with another 75 or so posts this year, there remains a larger number that will not get any increase since the labor markets in those countries do not show that increases are warranted.”

Lurch is an idiot, but not much different from Republicans who want amnesty. How is that any less out of touch?

The increase varies by country. Only some employees will get a 42% raise.

But it is still ridiculous.

As if the Republican Senatorial Committee is in touch with America. They spend more money attacking conservatives they dont like than attacking Democrats. No doubt this is a ploy to get the base donating to them again. Yeah right. I give my money to conservatives only, rather than McConnell scams.

“Oh, no! John Kerry is a dirtbag... wasting out money... the debt!”

WE KNOW!!!!!!!!!!! And you bozos help them at every opportunity.

NRSC wmail. NRSCS, an organization controlled by McConnell and ilk, the ones that folded on the defunding Obamacare and who gave Obamala the ‘clean’ debt ceiling bill.

And here they are, talking dirty about a government out of control.

Post #9 seems pretty open and shut to me. Further, it specifies that the ones getting the 42% raise are foreign nationals. The American Citizens will get much less.

Agreed.
See post#13

Anything involving Kerry is always going to be anti-American.
It’s his default position.
