Good News: Congress Getting a Pay Raise

And you'll never guess who gave the order: President Barack Obama. All of his statements disparaging Congress for lacking common sense? It seems that he is rewarding them for their disarray.

From the Weekly Standard:
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.
They clearly all deserve it, right?

  1. Ja sure they deserve it i mean the economy is trash,the middle class and lower class people are not getting paid what they should[at walmart you have to work your ass off for 6 years for one lousy raise]"our"taxes are being raised,food/gas is being raised,milk will be 8 dollars a gallon because of them,and the list just goes on but ja sure give those fat sons of bitches more money. And it was the president who issued it? Seriously he's got all these problems that he is not helping or dealing with and we are trillions of dollars in debt and the really have the money to give themselves more money? Unless our debt is just an illusion and they just want more money or to distract us...hmmm i wonder...
