Congress get a f@#*ing pay raise!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Obama signed a executive order saying that congress will make a 1% pay increase effective 3/27/2013. WTF?? Seriously? WTF is Obama thinking?? Oh ya, he may think if he give them a raise they will vote more favorably for him. If this isn't some sort of bribe, I do not know what is! We are standing on the verge of a fiscal cliff, we will see a decrease in our paychecks, 2 million people face a chance of losing their unemployment, and we face a possible $6 for a gallon of milk! Nothing like kicking Americans in the ass when we are down.

To all the Obama supporters, what do you think now? Why in the hell was this guy re-elected??

  • I wish I could not do my job and not only stay employed but also get a pay raise. I wish that those in the Legislative Branch would ever put their own pay on the line when a money crisis occurs.

  • And now we know WHY he was pushing soooo hard for tax increases, and not worried a bit about spending cuts. All he wants is pay raises for his buddies. And what better way to fund THAT than to raise OUR taxes? I don't know how or why he was reelected, but it was not for a good reason, I do know that.
