TAX INCREASES FOR YOU, PAY RAISES FOR THEM

Human Events

President Obama just issued an executive order to thaw out the rather over-hyped “pay freeze” on various federal employees, “in effect giving some federal workers a raise,” as the Weekly Standard reports.

One of the workers in question is Vice President Joe Biden, who’s getting a bump from $225k per year to $231,900 per year.  Hmm.  He’s a “millionaire” under Democrat party dogma, because he makes over $200,000 per year, and he’s getting a raise bigger than the $2,200 tax increase Obama’s intransigence is about to dump on the Sainted Middle Class.

Overall, it’s not a very big pay increase.  The Level I executive pay rate is going from $199,700 to $200,700 – in other words, from just below the $200,000 single-filer threshold that makes them “millionaires” to just above it.  Various congressional and judicial salaries are affected as well.  And no matter how much you happen to make, it’s demoralizing to have your pay frozen.  Government employees understandably feel no differently on that topic than their private-sector counterparts.

    I get that feeling that the devil knows his time is short and that is why he’s pulling all this crap.

    “Overall, it’s not a very big pay increase.” Horseshit! $1.00 is too much. If anything, they should get a pay decrease, the lousy bastards.

    it is FACT, that those working in public sector jobs make far more than those in the private sector already. what kills me about our elected public “servants” is isn’t it past time they SERVE THE PUBLIC they alledgedly represent by accepting NO PAY RAISE but rather serve pro bono while we are in this FISCAL MESS OF THEIR MAKING. I read some time back that their personal portfolios since assuming office have increased by 135%. let the fuckers eat cake indeed.

    It’s hard to believe that stupid moronic cowardly conservatives are still paying income tax.
