President Obama Uses Executive Order to Raise Pay for Biden, Congress, & Other Cronies

pay raise

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.

    This still irks me…especially when they made such a big deal (rightfully so) about the fiscal cliff. Isn’t this the time...
