    Government hiring has exploded and wage increases likewise. Now this? Who the hell do they think pays for this? Oh yeah, those in the private sector with real income losses:

    I hear you - the government needs to shed a boatload of "do nothing" employees in all departments and agencies.

    I'm sure that's true. But even the one's that are doing a fair day's work, no increases! Not until private sector starts catching up.

    As for corporate officer's, let the stock holders decide on their compensation.
