Nonsense: In the Face of the Fiscal Cliff, Obama Signs Executive Order to Raise Washington Salaries

December 28, 2012 3:39 pm

What’s that? You haven’t received a raise at work during this economy even though you are …doing your job? Not the case for the guys in the bubble known as Washington.

Via 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.

It’s not a ton of money, but a raise for the people already making 6-figures that have unsuccessfully found any level of compromise in order to avoid the fiscal cliff that will affect every single American? How much more out of touch could these people be? What a slap in the face to American taxpayers
