So, Obama executive orders a pay raise for federal employees


LINK

Isn't the government broke?

Obama controls pay for Congress?



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. Here's the list of new wages

If someone does their job well pay increases are merited.

Congress, on the other hand...

They should all be fired. Without benefits.

I've heard an opinion that gov't jobs should be voluntary with no pay at all.

Whatcha think of that?

This.

I always thought in the beginning that it was supposed to be a burden. Something that no one Wanted to do but felt that it was their Duty to do it if they had been elected.

Instead of a raise, we need a national vote on confidence in congress.
If congress doesn't get a vote of confidence they are all gone.
