Obama Using Your Higher Taxes To Give Pay Raises to Federal Bureaucrats

Southern Man 2013/02/12 15:01:03


After spending four
years begging for tax hikes, President Obama has revealed what he’s
going to do with the extra money: pay raises for federal bureaucrats.
That’s right — your tax dollars are going to raises for all federal
civilian workers — including Members of Congress and Cabinet

President Obama will propose a pay raise for federal
civilian employees that is less than private-sector wage growth yet more
than that favored by many House Republicans, who want to extend an
employee pay freeze.

Obama will propose a 1 percent pay increase in the administration’s fiscal 2014 budget plan, which is expected in mid-March.

At the same time, the House plans to vote soon on legislation that
would extend the current freeze on basic pay rates through the end of
the 2013 calendar year. The freeze was originally set for two years and
had been scheduled to end in December but was extended until a temporary
budget measure expires next month.

In April, federal employees will receive a 0.5 percent raise for the remainder of 2013, unless blocked by congressional action.

This comes during the same week that on Fox News Sunday, Nancy Pelosi claimed “it is almost a false argument to say we have a spending problem.”

0bama is a fool giving pay raises to people that don't need them while he raises taxes and kills jobs what is wrong with this picture ....I have said it before and will say it again ..0bama is killing this country from the inside out he is making us weak ... How is it that only a few people understand this if I had more hair I would be pulling it out everyday .... Pelosi is a complete wast of human she should be in Prison for the things she has gotten away with ... If this was a Republican that was in power all hell would have broke lose people all over the Country would be yelling for impeachment CNN MSNBC and all other news outlets would be reporting on every last screw up I am pissed off .....

    NOTHING this pissant does surprises me. That's OK because he will soon have the entire federal government in ruins. Then we get to start over again, this time without the welfare breeders, leaches and bureaucratic BS!

    So....................let's not send him any more tax money. If he confiscated everything I own, he wouldn't have enough to pay off his tiniest bribe. He would be losing money by confiscating everything from me.

    Don't ya' just love gov't waste? Raise taxes on everyone and give a raise to a few instead of paying off the bills. Wow, is this a great country or what?
  • Striker 2013/02/12 15:12:56
    A. This shows clearly enough that creating more money causes inflation, thus ANY raises are only to CYA for the failure of government to manage it's fiat money.
    B. Federal employees are already paid considerably more than those working comparable jobs in the real world we call the private sector.
    C. A bankrupt country handing out raises to it's own under such circumstances merely shows the foolishness of continuing this government.
