President Barack Obama told congressional leaders Tuesday that he was implementing a 0.5 percent pay increase for federal employees that would go into effect next April. Congress is expected to pass a Continuing Resolution when it returns to Washington in September to avoid an Oct. 1 government shutdown. Obama extended the pay freeze through the duration of that CR.
A new survey from the National Treasury Employees Union finds two-thirds of Americans said Congress should raise taxes on the country's wealthiest citizens before cutting vital public services. However, others say the survey didn't ask the right questions.
