Obama Reduces Pay Increase for Federal Employees

From Fox News:

Civilian federal employees won’t get as big a pay raise as expected next year, President Obama announced Monday.

In a letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Obama said he has decided — in light of the economic crisis — that civilian federal employees should receive a 2 percent pay increase starting Jan. 1, 2010, instead of the 2.4 percent across-the-board increase that was expected.

“With unemployment at 9.5 percent in June to cite just one economic indicator, few would disagree that our country is facing serious economic conditions affecting the general welfare,” Obama wrote. “The growth in federal requirements is straining the federal budget.”

He just admitted that there is a problem with Federal Spending and he wants to SPEND MORE!!!! May the good Lord help us all.
