UPDATE: According to a senior Republican congressional aide who has reviewed the executive order and consulted with the Congressional Budget Office, Obama’s pay raise will cost $11 billion. “The CBO told us that the President’s pay raise for federal workers will cost $11 billion over ten years,” says the aide.

The aide explains, “On the cost-estimate, CBO says the (discretionary) cost of the .5% pay-hike the President is calling for in the Exec Order – relative to a freeze – is about $500m in FY 2013 and $11 billion over the ten years from FY 13 – FY 22.  The reason why the FY ’13 savings is only $500 million is because the pay hike as proposed by the President’s Exec Order would not go into effect until April 1st, 2013 – when the current CR expires. So it only covers half the fiscal year. The annualized cost of the pay hike is about $1 billion/year.” source – Weekly Standard

  • The country is broke, we have the highest unemployment rate ever, 46 million people are on food stamps, no one has affordable health care, employers are hiring part-time workers so they don’t have to offer benefits, and the Terrorist-in-Chief thinks the feds all need a raise.

    Well, ain’t that special!

  • I agree. Everything seems so crazy now, who would have thought that we would see a terrorist in the WH.
    God help us.

  • Tom…that is exactly what I thought when I read it. Just more people in his pocket. More people in the golden handcuffs who are slaves to his handouts and pay raises. All paid for by the taxpayers.

    • I think you both correct… These people getting the raises probably know that the money is no good, in the back of their minds! But wait until it really hits and they need twice as much just to stay even! Then the squeal will be even shriller!

  • And Matthew 19:24 again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.

    1 Timothy 6:9-10 But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish
    and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition.

    They are not being paid by “WE THE PEOPLE” for the job they have done for us,they have been paid by the “Elite the Luciferians” for looking away and being silent.

    Peace be unto you
