Obama Orders Raise for Biden, Members of Congress, Federal Workers

12:50 PM, DEC 28, 2012

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.

Here's the list of new wages, as attached to President Obama's executive order:

The President is might liberal when

The President is might liberal when it comes to handing out stolen money.

Just because he does it, it is still criminal.

So is killing 4.6 children a day during his first term in office.

If modern democracy wasn't a fraud there would be no way for anyone to be elected that represented less that 50% of the voters.

Free includes debt-free!

Where does the US

Where does the US Constitution grant the POTUS the power over any spending whether freeze, raise, etc? I can already think of several instances where Obama should have been promptly impeached. Naturally, our complicit congress is part of the problem granting itself automatic raises in pay while totally ignoring its OBLIGATIONS like impeachment of a POTUS engaged in criminally unconstitutional (unlawful) behavior. I suspect in due course most Americans will once again learn to abhor kings just as our founders did, but it'll be too late to act without bloodshed.

Notice the current leading montage on the Drudge Report showing Obama's face superimposed on Lincoln's upper body with a caption of "Barack Hussein Lincoln". Matt, are you saying that Obama will be POTUS during the second Civil War? Hmmmm, if so you may be right.
