While We Were Facing a Fiscal Cliff, Congress Got a Raise
It's outrageous! In a recent Presidential Executive Order that was not requested by Congress, Mr. Obama granted members of Congress and other federal workers a pay raise!
Washington hasn't been able to make a budget in 3 years or settle the fiscal cliff issues, and they are rewarded with a pay increase? President Obama should rescind his Executive Order giving Congress and others a pay raise!
Some in Congress are actually against this move. Alaska Senators and other officials are petitioning to get the raise removed. One representative even said that if all Americans don't get an automatic pay raise, Congress shouldn't either.
