Vice President Biden will get a $6400 raise come April and Congressman Owens a $900 raise as a result of President Obama lifting a pay freeze for federal workers. Obviously the electeds get the publicity, but the government bleeding out $1.6Trillion a year is still spending, and well it should.
President Obama won the election and there was no doubting his agenda.
Besides, federal workers need a little love, especially the VP.
I don't mind the raise because I believe you have a right to get what you pay for. Regrettably, our problem is not what Congress is paid, as its a tough job to land.......Our's is spending problem, or so we are told.
Since there seems to be no consequence to such spending (been going on for years) maybe the President is right ?
