Obama Doles Out 1% Pay Raise To Federal Employees By Executive Order
Constitution accords to Congress the power of the purse.

But will any of them say anything to Obama about his lawless executive order?

Meanwhile, of course, he’s still cutting military benefits for veterans, that were in fact earned, while putting out a Christmas message about how much he supports them.

Quote:Just in time for Christmas, President Obama signed an executive order on Monday giving a 1 percent pay raise for federal employees.

The raise follows a four year hiatus from salary increases for federal workers, although most federal employees have apparently seen their pay increase via promotion or performance. The first increased paycheck will kick in on January 1.

President Obama’s reward to the federal workforce follows his longstanding belief that government work ought to be a first option for Americans.

Nonetheless, Obama’s decision to raise federal pay only widens the income inequality gap between federal workers and private sector employees; as of 2011, the average private sector employee made $59,804 in salary, and $28,000 in benefits, while the average federal workers made $74,436 in salary and $40,000 in benefits.
It's the "BILL OF RIGHTS" not the bill of "needs"
This was coming way back in October, when Obama was given the budget that included the raise in it:

He was going to do it regardless.

In late August, Obama announced his intent to set a 1 percent January raise by default, as is allowed by federal pay law, if no other figure, including zero, were enacted into law by the end of the calendar year.

The goal is to deter enlistment. Ergo, make it economically not feasable to do so.

Goal 2: buy New Democrat voters. Increase bennies for illegals.

Makes perfect sense

Admit nothing.  Deny everything. Demand proof.
If we lie to the government, it's a crime. If the government lies to the people, it's called politics.
Paying for welfare is slavery.
I think the 20% increase plus in welfare is far more worthy of getting worked up over instead of a raise that will be a penny on the dollar. I don't know about the rest of you, but anywhere I've ever worked 1% isn't exactly something anyone is excited about--more of an insult than anything.

What a gutless congress. If he had no authority to do this, congress should immediately order this is not authorized and that no money will be paid.

If he want's the money, take us to court.
