As a House-Senate conference committee continues negotiations over how to extend the payroll tax cut, ahead of a Feb. 29 deadline, there's at least one issue that has never left the table: federal pay and benefits. The eight House Republicans on the conference committee all voted in support of the stand-alone pay freeze bill. Of the five House Democrats, only Rep. Allyson Schwartz, of Pennsylvania, voted yes on the bill.
A bill in the House would prohibit within-grade pay increases through 2012 for federal employees.
GOP senators unveiled a bill Thursday that would grant the Defense Department a one-year reprieve from "sequestration" cuts. House minority leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) called the proposal "skullduggery."

The vote today in the House on another year of the federal pay freeze is meant to send a message to the conferees who are meeting on the payroll tax cut extension, says a reporter with The Hill newspaper.
The House is scheduled to vote on a bill on Wednesday to extend the civilian federal pay freeze another year — through 2013.
A couple of weeks back, Senior Correspondent Mike Causey wrote a rare "this-is-good-news" column about federal workers. He would now like to withdraw that column and apologize for what turned out to be irrational exuberance.
