    Obama isn't so much interested in money as he is in favors.

    So Obama is just basically giving us the finger! Everybody knows that federal employees already make more than private sector employees and that their pay comes out of our pockets. It takes the profit-making activities of 5 private sector employees to generate enough taxable profit to support a single Govt. employee…there are over 4-million federal employees, so over 20-million private sector employees are required to generate the taxable profit for just the federal work force alone, and this doesn't include any other budget items.
    This means Govt. is consuming a substantial portion of the real GDP already being produced by (us) this country, and recycling tax money back into the economy does not provide real growth at all.

    How DARE the author say Biden will get a "little bump" or act like these raises are no big deal! Biden's raise of $6,400.00 is more than some will make in a YEAR!
    I noticed the "author" didn't allow any way to comment on the article.
    This makes it VERY clear. Oblameo doesn't realize we have a SPENDING problem and not a revenue problem!
