President Barack Obama issued an executive order to end the pay freeze on federal employees, in effect giving some federal workers a raise. One federal worker now to receive a pay increase is Vice President Joe Biden.
According to disclosure forms, Biden made a cool $225,521 last year. After the pay increase, he'll now make $231,900 per year.
Members of Congress, from the House and Senate, also will receive a little bump, as their annual salary will go from $174,000 to 174,900. Leadership in Congress, including the speaker of the House, will likewise get an increase.

I just don't know how the poor bastards will make it on such pittance of a salary! Momma and me worry so much about the critters!
The government gets a pay raise and the people have to pay double what it used to.. 1 year ago in the food store it cost me 60 bucks for food that I bought every week. Today that same food now cost me 120 bucks for the say food... And now the gov people get a average 10% pay raise for not doing their jobs.....
Question? according to Geitner we should reach the debt ceiling on Mon. 31 December 2012. Were is the money going to come from to cover these pay raises, I'll say it right now congress better not up the ante for Obama.
SO MAYBE WHEN YOU ALL ARE SICK AND TIRED OF BEING SICK AND TIRED, you'll do something! Until then, all this here is hyperbole!
Rock...You are so correct....
I know this is how it's supposed to work but,your kidding right? Most of the idiots in this country under the age of 30 this looks like abstract art.Face it we've allowed this country to be too dumb#@%*d down. I mean seriously, Obama got elected then reelected how the hell did that happen with an intellegent populace?
Kinda makes S S look a little puny
OUT RAGES !!!!!
This appears to me to be outright buying congressional votes to pass legislation. What else can it be?
I've had it with this mans abuse of power & lack of concern for WE THE PEOPLE! Typical dictatorship! I want action too to see this man removed from office! The "CLIFF" is nothing as to what is going to happen! Taxes go up, yet BO will lower them later to make his HALO glow brighter...and wait till Obummercare taxes hit !! This is OUT of Control! Thanks LIBS...for NOTHING! They'll be crying soon too!
Wish I had an effin part-time job with a padded expense account that paid $174,900 per year + all the kickbacks that I could stuff in my freezer, not to mention flying on private jets.
