Biden, Owens Get an Overdue Raise

       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 ?

The last big joke of 2012? Surely ... a sick act, period. I am ashamed of Mr. Obama for this EO.

Pay raise for what? Doing nothing .. there is a symbol here ... no pay raises for anyone in elected office in DC, period.

Crazy Payraise

Good timing Chairman Obumba. Do it on a Friday, when media is out drinking. Then again, with you, they are always out drinking. Its only money, and principle. Neither one means much to you.

People get the government they deserve----------------------

Danny of all the things you should be ashamed of Obama over, this should not make the top million.

I appreciate you comment, Dannie. But I'll bet it would have NO effect on your vote. You would vote for any Democrat no matter what they did. Nothing could possibly change your party line loyalty. And that's is what has us in one hell of a mess. There are so many like you.

Congress can stop this by refusing to fund it. Let us see if anyone steps up. Are you listening Mr. Owens?

Anony. 11:13 - unless you have access to my voting record, or happen to know who or how I voted in the past, please do me the honor and shut the f**k up ... to have have knowledge would be illegal unless I revealed it - so stop pretending you know. It makes you look like the worst kind of ass - more than you appear to be already, if that's possible.

Ooo, The Francis is mad at Little 'ol Me. Well tell us, Dan. Who was the last Republican you voted for? One the actually had a chance to win. You aren't allowed to think independently. At least none of us here has seen any evidence of it. And wink,,no profanity necessary on my part. I love it when you talk dirty to me.

A democrat is circulating a petition in congress to refuse this pay raise.

But another Democrat pushed the raise through. Don't be stupid, 2:47.
