Obama Orders Pay Increases

Some stories from the Files of the Incredibly Stupid need to be looked at all by themselves in order to avoid giving my readers a stroke. This is one of them.

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 (even with an approval rating below 18%).

Here's the list of the old and the new wages, as attached to President Obama's executive order:

I have only 1 comment to make about this: Why?

Live Long and Prosper...
