We have now established what you are…

and now we know the price

What do you do with people who cannot or will not do the jobs they were hired to do?

Biden made … $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.

…[According to] the Congressional Budget Office, Obama’s pay raise will cost $11 billion [over 10 years]

How’d that happen?

“A new executive order[*PDF] has been issued providing for a new pay schedule beginning ‘on the first day of the first applicable pay period beginning after March 27, 2013,’” reports FedSmith.com. “The pay raise will generally be about 1/2 of 1%.”

Was I mistaken in thinking that the only branch of gobt charged with spending The People’s Money is the House of Representatives?

    Because of the national debt they all protested and refused to accept the raise. No word about how much of a raise the President gave himself?

    Screw them. They’re warts on the ass of progress and destined to find they’re inconsequential and unwelcome at home.

    May they find the increasingly crime ridden areas of Washington D.C. to be what they deserve.

    Get them pimp daddy. They deserve the worst.

    Normally, yes. But that presupposes that Congress passes budgets on a regular basis.

    Haven’t you ever wondered by the Senate has refused to bring the House’s budgets to a vote? If there’s no formal budget, you get to employ all sorts of neat workarounds to move money around the country, many of which wouldn’t stand the normal scrutiny of the budget process. It also helps that the MSM LRMC* averts its eyes.

    Yanno,Leni Riefenstahl really gets it sometimes, but all she really was was some broad with a camera. There’s no particular magic attached to her. She just knew how to push the button that said “On”. It’s like blaming Hugo Boss for all the Nazi atrocities just because he designed uniforms that were cooler than anybody else’s.

    *Pimp Daddy is on the case. They will not rest until they are too dead to rest. They will retire, and then come out of retirement because Pimp Daddy will not let them rest. Pimp Daddy never gets to rest, why should they get to rest? Pimp Daddy will put a serious hurt on their resting part.

    Pimp Daddy don’t mess around.

    Pimp Daddy needs a nap now.
