Obama Orders Pay Raise For Congress, Federal Workers, Joe Biden
President Barack Obama gave a New Year's gift to returning members of Congress, federal workers and Vice President Joe Biden on Thursday, signing an executive order calling for an end to a years-long pay freeze.

As of March 27, 2013, federal employees will see a half-percent to one percent pay increase, marking the end of a pay freeze that has been in place since late 2010. Congress hasn't seen a pay raise since 2009.

According to the order, Biden's pay will increase from $225,521 to $231,900 a year, before taxes. House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) will see his salary increased to $224,500 and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) will take home an annual pay of $194,400 after his raise.

Isn't that nice to be rewarded for doing nothing? On the other hand, if you are above a certain rank in the military you did not get paid today and there is no telling when that will happen.

What should happen is that they lose their jobs and not be rewarded. Timmy TurboTax just said earlier this week that this country is broke on Dec 31, the fiscal cliff begins Jan 1, and these people are pulling their puds like it's just another day of lobbying and fundraising.

Is this not the opposite of what he should be doing?

The last budget submitted was during Obama's first year. That didn't garner one single vote from a Democrat. Since then, all spending has been provisional. Isn't that nice?

Today also marks the third time since Obama took office that the military did not get paid. The last time it happened it took another 55 days before they received a paycheck! That's a great way for the Commander-In-Thief to improve troop morale!

In the real world outside of DC, pay raises are based on merit. What have these 536 people done to deserve a raise?
