    never forget, it is you and I and them.

    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.

    Nice spin. He does not have the power to order pay raises.

    Hmmm, let's see, he signs an executive order and people receive more money. And that is not a raise? Really?

    All my conservative buddies sure as hell dont mind taking Holiday pay last week and this week.


    BTW, Obama allowed for one more Holiday pay day this past week. Instead of two, its 3 days. Thank you President Obama, its been a tough few years and I know my family appreciates it.


    shocker.


    ya know, if you conservatives don't like paying taxes and funding the federal payroll, why don't you just get up and leave? Case closed, and you will be happier and can keep all your income. win win, right?

    So, allowing a federal pay adjustment that has been frozen in the past few years is a power grab? please explain.

    Obama ended wage freezes that have been in place since 2009 and which he instituted in the first place for these employees. These federal employees who have not had any raises since 2009, will now receive 1/2 of 1% more in their pay.
