At The Edge of The Cliff: The Dictator Gives His Court Jester and Their Minions A Raise
Or ... "The Emperor Grants Raises to Those About to Tax and Regulate The Hell Out of The Rest of Us."
President Barack Obama’s newest executive order put an end to the pay freeze on federal employees, giving some federal workers a raise, including Vice President Joe Biden.
Biden will earn $231,900 beginning March 2013, a roughly $6,000 bump from the previous year, The Weekly Standard reports, citing official disclosure forms.
Members of the House and Senate will also get a small pay increase of $900 as annual compensation for members of Congress will jump to $174,900 in 2013.
President Obama’s executive order lays out the new pay schedule...
They may not be huge pay increases, but the timing of the executive order is interesting as Obama and Congress are currently trying to avoid going over the so-called “fiscal cliff. Meanwhile, Americans are tightening their belts and preparing for potentially higher taxes.
Gee, just under that $250K mark of the "evil rich". The uninformed voter who sees this story in the MSM will honestly believe this government pay is the only wealth these people have, willfully ignorant of the fact these career politicians' government paychecks are chicken feed to what they actually have in their personal accounts/holdings.
Meanwhile in just a few short days ALL our taxes will be going up with the expiration of the Obama-extended "Bush Tax Cuts for The Rich" (Funny that ... considering ALL our taxes will be going up. ALL. Everyone's.), and as the multitude of added taxation under the beloved ObamaCare tax law on ALL Americans kicks in.
Hey, "Got Milk"???
Oh, and do you have kids/toddlers who drink milk or pour it over their cereal? Do you drink your coffee with milk? Like other dairy products, such as cheese and ice cream? The prices on such milk/dairy items could very well be doubling during all this Obama tax-gasm.
We are becoming a zoo full of managed and controlled animals.
But it's all good, comrades...
