  • Yeah, what about
    obscurechemist
    that Simpson-Bowles? They were the guys who predicted, 2 years ago, that, we would have a major fiscal collapse in, oh yeah, two years. Guess not. Simpson and Bowles do not know what they are talking about.

    POTUS loves to spend money we don't have except when it comes to spending money on federal employees. It amazes me how many feds are walking around with blinders on. When this guy is done this will be the worst 8 year stretch for feds we've ever seen.

    FERS Fed
    Isn't this where you're supposed to weigh in with how WAY better off feds would have been under a Romney Administration?

  • 1% increase???
    jimmie55
    Does the president have a split personality??? Why would you freeze federal employees pay for 3 years and then give a 1% pay increase when funding is so bad? There is talk of sequestration and furloughs, so I can only assume this is ANOTHER empty promise that the president KNOWS will not come to pass. Its an empty gesture to appease federal employees.

  • Bargaining
    Sam B
    It's a bargaining tool. When sequestration comes closer, the White House will simply say to Congress "Ok, we'll nix the idea of a raise if you nix the idea of a furlough and together we'll both do our part to save money." The raise will not happen. And furloughs will not happen. Federal employees will continue to be treated like pawns in the game of chess between the White House and Congress.

  • Time for Honesty
    ry1nik
    If you're a Democrat/Obama-basher, at least be intellectually honest about it. Under a Republican President, the outlook for the federal workforce would be FAR bleaker. No question about it, and deep down you know it.
