    Federal pay freeze plan wouldn't stop raises
    By STEPHEN LOSEY | Last Updated: December 6, 2010

    President Obama spoke of the need for sacrifice last week when he announced a two-year pay freeze for federal employees.

    But feds won't be too terribly deprived in 2011 and 2012. Despite the freeze, some 1.1 million employees will receive more than $2.5 billion in raises during that period.

    Congress is expected to approve Obama's proposal, which cancels only cost-of-living adjustments for two years. Regularly scheduled step increases for the 1.4 million General Schedule employees — who make up two-thirds of the civilian work force — will continue. The size of those increases ranges from 2.6 percent to 3.3 percent and by law kick in every one, two or three years, depending on an employee's time in grade.

    John Gage, national president of the American Federation of Government Employees, called Obama's plan "wrongheaded" and driven by politics. But he said the news that step increases will not be affected takes some of the sting out of the decision.

    "They're doing this as a symbol, but it's the wrong type of symbol to take it out on working people making basic wages," Gage said.

    But Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, called the retention of step increases a hole in Obama's plan. He also said the administration should freeze hiring and reduce the federal payroll from $447 billion to $400 billion.

    It's just better I guess to assume if his lips are moving he's lying. We need to erect a monument to Rep. Joe Wilson.

    I don't think he fooled as many as you may think. I think the goal was to elect a black man. A demonRat said as much here on this board just the other day.
