Backpeddling Obama? And all you libs swallowed it.

President Obama spoke of the need for sacrifice last week when he announced a two-year pay freeze for federal employees.

But feds won't be too terribly deprived in 2011 and 2012. Despite the freeze, some 1.1 million employees will receive more than $2.5 billion in raises during that period.

Congress is expected to approve Obama's proposal, which cancels only cost-of-living adjustments for two years. Regularly scheduled step increases for the 1.4 million General Schedule employees — who make up two-thirds of the civilian work force — will continue. The size of those increases ranges from 2.6 percent to 3.3 percent and by law kick in every one, two or three years, depending on an employee's time in grade.

  • I have said it before,and I'll say it again. That man could hold a press conference, say "yes, I'm the Anti-Christ, get 666 on your forehead,and renounce God or suffer the consequences", and the msm and his handlers and minions would STILL say "oh, he's misunderstood", and "so, Bill Mahr, have you got your 666 yet?" "Yup, Michael Moore, remember, we were in the same line."

  • Well f@ck. The military will only get a 1.something pay raise next year. And are then now NOT included in this pay freeze? They used to get much better pay raises, more then double this.
