When President Obama proposed to freeze Federal Government pay for two years I thought he was taunting us with an April Fool’s joke in November. I mean really. Is the public supposed to take the President seriously after he signed off on a 3.9% 2009 pay hike when Armageddon hit in 2008 while attacking the private sector for getting paid too much? Not only did all Federal Government employees get a 3.9% pay hike in 2009, they also got another 2.9% pay hike in 2010! In other words, while practically all of America suffered through the financial crisis with pay cuts and job losses, Federal Government employees raked it in! We’re talking the percentage of Federal Government employees making over $100,000 jumping from 14% to 19% during the meltdown. Sweet!
