    Default Obama signs ANOTHER executive order

    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:

    With millions of Americans unemployed, underemployed, and whose pay has been cut over the last few years, it seems ridiculous that the architects of our problems are rewarded with pay raises - small though they may be.

    The Executive Order has been abused at least since Clinton, if not before.

    It was not meant to be used as a "I don't like that button" to override the intentions of Congress.

    Though I am sure, no one will be complaining about the increase in their paycheck.

    That all being said, if memory serves, the pay freeze has been in effect for years, why not just put it through to Congress when they pass the next budget. Oh, well, maybe it was needed, since they haven't passed a budget in fucking years!

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!
