Talk about hubris. Get a load of this steaming heap from, what else, a union official.
Maybe I should have titled this “From The Dumb As Dog Squeeze” file. From Breitbart.com. Be flabbergasted, my friends.
Obama Gives Pay Raise to Federal Workers, Union Complains
President Barack Obama issued an executive order on Friday to end a three-year freeze on federal pay scales and give federal workers a one percent pay raise.
Union boss J. David Cox Sr., head of the American Federation of Government Employees, called Obama’s pay raise “inadequate” and “pitiful” but a step in the right direction.
“Although the 1 percent is a pitiful amount that doesn’t begin to compensate for the furloughs and three years of frozen pay, it is a welcome development,” said Cox. “To call this raise inadequate is an understatement, but it is good news all the same.”
The pay increase will not presently extend to blue-collar federal workers, reports the Federal Times, but negotiations are ongoing.
Obama’s decision to increase federal pay will be used as a bargaining chip in the looming debt ceiling and spending reduction showdown with Republicans.
Obama indicated on Friday that his pay hike would extend to the military, a move designed to preempt GOP efforts to increase military pay by 1.8 percent.
Could also have called this “One From The Schadenfreude File” as well.
This union gave 100% of it’s financial support, and votes, to Obama in 2012, and THIS is how he repays them. Folks, all I’ve got to say about this is: BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHAHA.
Enjoy it, SUCKERS !
