Obama Orders Pay Raise
for Biden, Members
of Congress, Federal Workers

Weekly Standard, by Daniel Halper

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 12/29/2012 5:25:37 AM

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. Here´s the list of new wages,

I´ll probably get my usual 1%. Meanwhile gas and groceries continue to go up and up.

Biden deserves his raise over the great job he did reeling in stimulus waste. There really aren´t words for these people getting raises while we´r eon the edge of default. Federal workers get raises by moving up a grade and performance bonuses,so they really don´t even need a pay scale boost.Congress probably gets per diems that are bigger than the raise they got.

From whence cometh his authority to give these raises. I thought that was the jurisdiction of Congress. Oh, but the reality is that Congress is made up of a bunch of cardboard cutouts!

The federal workers are making better salaries then private sector. They should be the last ones to get any type of raise. This man does not care about the debt. He will keep spending our money without any conscience....bottomline he does not care are all. It´s not his money.

P.S. I worked as and with the federal workers for 35 years. 75% of them have horrible work ethics.

Another end run around Congress. Obama is in full Cloward and Piven strategy to completely drain the Treasury.

Remember he is the head of the Demonrat party, so they and the cowardly press are also to blame for the demise.

Obama redistributes wealth, not from rich to poor but from the productive private sector which is not yet dependent on the government to the overpaid, wasteful, unproductive of real wealth, public sector. This pay raise is just one step in this process. These socialist policies destroy everyone even those who believe they will be helped at the expense of others.

Calm down, folks.
The constitution limits salary increases for certain offices, as far as timing of the increases. (can´t get an increase mid term)
The executive order issue is a different matter. Someone should file a lawsuit.
But like the legal challenges to the kenyan klown´s eligibility to serve as president, I would guess the courts would say that no one has legal standing to file the lawsuit.

I don´t know what to say. There are just no words to describe how heartbroken I am that we are at the mercy of such a man. Obama is so obviously enjoying himself as he destroys our system of government, our financial structure, our religion, our way of life. He lords it over us and rewards his followers who make that possible by supporting him no matter what he does.
He wants to destroy the Republican party and many os us help him by vilifying Republican office holders and refusing to any longer donate to the Party. The House of Representatives is all we have left in Washington and we may easily lose it in 2014.

One day our grand and great grandchildren will learn of how gullible we were to elect/serve a President who sought to destroy what our forefathers worked/died for - to make US free from dictators!

Pray for America!

May this year be a time when we as citizens love our country enough to make a stand for righteousness! It is what is missing in this administration. I don´t think they know or care for what is right or what is wrong. Political correctness has become the way of life for the Dems/Libs/Progressives, who daily lead US further and further into an abyss that we may never come out of.

Only God,in His Righteousness, can/will save US from the tyranny now and fastly becoming unbearable.

America needs God back in our government, our schools, our homes, and sadly, even back in our churches, which has become a haven for anyone who supplies the need for money, instead of serving God and knowing Him to be our Creator, Savior and soon coming King, who will deliver US from all evil, if we only invite Him in and rest in His Presence. Amen

Money is not the answer - accountability is! We need to come together, to search our hearts, know in Whom believe and then act in accordance with His Word (Bible), where we find all our answers. It has served the world well for countless years and will continue to do so.

Dust off that Precious Book and allow God to reveal Himself, teach US, bind US together, see Who is able/willing to deliver US from all evil, here and abroad. Amen

Here’s another reason why government should never own a business. In February 2010, the Obama Administration’s Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood told America, without a shred of evidence, that Toyota automobiles were dangerous to drive. LaHood offered the remarks in front of the House Appropriations subcommittee that was investigating reports of unintended-acceleration crashes. “My advice is, if anybody owns one of these vehicles, stop driving it,” he said, sending the company’s stock into a nosedive. Even at the time, LaHood’s comments were reckless at best. Assailing the competition reeks of political opportunism and cronyism. It also illustrates one of the unavoidable

“I’d rather be a really good one-term president than a mediocre two-term president,” Barack Obama said, well before his 2012 re-election. Most historians do not seem to believe that a really good president can be a one-termer. Two-thirds of presidents have not been re-elected (generally due to death or defeat), but in most academic rankings James Polk is the lone single-termer to crack the Top 10. Polk may be a stumper in a game of “Jeopardy!,” but he did double the size of the United States in four short years, and only ill health forced him to step aside after one

High deportation figures are misleading

WASHINGTON — Immigration activists have sharply criticized President Obama for a rising volume of deportations, labeling him the "deporter in chief" and staging large protests that have harmed his standing with some Latinos, a key group of voters for Democrats. But the portrait of a steadily increasing number of deportations rests on statistics that conceal almost as much as they disclose. A closer examination shows that immigrants living illegally in most of the continental U.S. are less likely to be deported today than before Obama came to office, according to immigration data. Expulsions of people who are settled and working in the

Republicans are now favored to control both chambers of Congress after the 2014 election. And thanks to favorable maps in both the House and the Senate, they could hold both for plenty of years to come. While much has been written in recent weeks about the GOP´s improving chances to win the Senate in 2014 -- and, to a lesser extent, the Democrats´ chances of winning it back in 2016 -- a look at the Senate map as a whole tells us this: Regardless of what happens in the next few years, Republicans have a distinct advantage in the battle

They’re practically the first words out of one’s mouth the second a Washington reporter hears about a new health reform proposal: "How many people does your plan cover?" The basic premise of the America Next health plan I’m endorsing today is simple: “I believe the problem is not that folks are trying to avoid getting health care. The problem is they can’t afford it.” In short, I agree with Barack Obama.

WASHINGTON -- The U.S. government masterminded the creation of a "Cuban Twitter" - a communications network designed to undermine the communist government in Cuba, built with secret shell companies and financed through foreign banks, The Associated Press has learned. The project, which lasted more than two years and drew tens of thousands of subscribers, sought to evade Cuba´s stranglehold on the Internet with a primitive social media platform. First, the network would build a Cuban audience, mostly young people; then, the plan was to push them toward dissent. Yet its users were neither aware it was created by a U.S. agency with

President Barack Obama is in a funk. Americans are coming to see the president as ineffectual. That is a dangerous perception. Obama’s job approval rating is at risk of dropping below 40 percent. Democrats may lose their majority in the Senate this fall. It may be difficult for the president to accomplish anything during his last two years. In the March NBC News-Wall Street Journal poll, 42 of registered voters say they would be less likely to vote for a candidate endorsed by Obama. Only 22 percent say they would be more likely to vote for Obama’s candidate. Why is this happening? Republicans

Barack Obama’s legacy legislation, the Affordable Healthcare Act (ACA) – commonly known as “Obamacare” – has clearly become the political equivalent of the wreck of the Hesperus. If there was any doubt remaining about that, it was all but removed by the administration’s recent decision to provide “hardship exemptions” to just about anyone who can work up the energy to apply for one – and its admitted inability to control the security of its own web portal. In case anyone forgets, Longfellow’s “The Wreck of the Hesperus” is the tragic story of a ship that floundered and sunk as the result

Before getting to the speech itself, it’s worth noting a few things. When the Democrats passed and Barack Obama signed Obamacare, the majority opposed it. About 56%, in fact. A majority have consistently opposed that law ever since. The Obama administration touted 7 million sign-ups by March 31 as “success.” When that goal appeared to be unreachable, the administration suggested that maybe 5 or 6 million would be enough. Now, as if by magic, they have their number. Somehow. All along, the administration has touted false numbers of enrollees. All along, the administration has neglected to admit that Obamacare is

A few months back, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius stated for the record that 7 million Obamacare sign-ups by the end of March would constitute success. She was clear about it. But then February came, and February always stinks. It’s just a lousy month. You’re tired of winter, you’re still miles away from spring, and no one was signing up for Obamacare. That 7 million figure looked totally unreachable. So Sebelius does what every other member of the Obama administration does when confronted with inconvenient facts. She lied.

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better.´ But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged Rose Garden appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night. Others were already insured, including millions who lost coverage when their existing policies were suddenly

ANN ARBOR, Mich. – President Obama compared the Republican budget plan to a "stinkburger" or "meanwich" during a speech here Wednesday, using a series of zingers in an attempt to strike a contrast with the GOP on economic issues in an election year. In a speech to an enthusiastic crowd of 1,400 at the University of Michigan, Obama repeatedly mocked Republican ideas about how to improve the economy, as he touted his own proposal to raise the minimum wage. Obama, who visited the local Zingerman´s deli before the speech, said that Republican proposals to cut taxes for wealthier Americans and

With Chris Christie in deep trouble, Republican poobahs are reportedly looking to Jeb Bush to save their party in 2016. The former two-term governor of Florida speaks fluent Spanish, is a convert to Catholicism, and has high name recognition. Jeb could raise millions of dollars over night by just saying “yes” to running. Despite all this, there are strong reasons Republicans should say no to him. 1. His last name is poison. Let’s face it, if Jeb Bush had the last name of Something Else he would have already run for president in 2008 or 2012. According to a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll registered voters were asked if they would definitely NOT vote for Jeb Bush and 50 percent said they would not.

Atlanta – Vegetarians may have a lower BMI and drink alcohol sparingly, but vegetarian diets are tied to generally poorer health, poorer quality of life and a higher need for health care than their meat-eating counterparts. A new study from the Medical University of Graz in Austria finds that vegetarians are more physically active, drink less alcohol and smoke less tobacco than those who consume meat in their diets. Vegetarians also have a higher socioeconomic status and a lower body mass index.
