With a supposed “Fiscal Cliff” looming, Obama wants raises for government workers

How soon is YOUR raise coming?

Obama and the Democrats say the problem isn’t that we spend too much, it’s that we tax too little. Makes it okay to spend more, I suppose.

Problem is, the left has been hyping the looming “Fiscal Cliff” for weeks, and America is near bankruptcy status already.

Imagine you are working for a company that is going bankrupt, but everyone you work with and your bosses are getting pay raises. Seem absurd? Not if you work for the failing federal government because President Obama has happily decreed that Vice President Biden, members of Congress and most federal workers are getting raises for 2013.

As the U.S. government is losing its luster on the bond market and as the fiscal cliff looms, President Obama issued an executive order to give everyone raises.

Obama has generously bestowed a $6,379 per year raise on Sheriff Joe, he’s given members of the House a $900 increase, and he’s doled out a .5 percent pay increase to federal workers.

We’re already screwed and about to drive over the cliff, and Obama wants to stomp on the gas pedal?
