Now that we have all those pesky budget details settled...raises for everyone!


LINK

quote:

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

Members of Congress don't deserve dick. They should have their salaries cut for the clusterfrick they have put the nation into.

I think completely cutting Congressional salaries and benefits while the nation runs a deficit would be good incentive for them to fix the budget. Let's include all pensions in that

People have to admit this is reaching Ayn Rand cliche-ness.

I think all congressmen, legislators, police jurors, school board members, councilmen should receive only modest salaries enough to pay their expenses. This is supposed to be "public service", let it be that way. This would cut down on lifetime members, cut down on days in session, cut down on BS and save money.

Im in the USMC and just got a pay cut!

At first I thought there was an error that I was getting $10 less per paycheck. Nope. I triple checked and my peers got it this fiscal year as well.

Why bother with a raise when they can openly deal in insider trading.

Hey, they gotta have money to trade with, right ?

They should tie all budget increases to the inflation rate. That would at least slow the spending down .

Although I'm retired military and one of those greedy pensioners, I'd pony up and take a cut to help get our country back to its former greatnesd. Just please include federal employees and politicians in with me. Don't want them to feel left out.

The insider trader money is their slush funds they live off the interest from.

How many people realize we pay for all the a holes car notes and that braid head woman was reported to have the highest car note $900 something.
