Obama orders end to FED pay freeze

by

Whew just in time too, since Joe Biden was hurting for money. 

You’d think Congress would get a pay cut.  I mean, shouldn’t they have to produce something…like… say a budget?  Nah, what I’m I thinking?

President Barack Obama issued an executive order to end the pay freeze on federal employees, in effect giving some federal workers a raise. One federal worker now to receive a pay increase is Vice President Joe Biden.

According to disclosure forms, Biden made a cool $225,521 last year. After the pay increase, he’ll now make $231,900 per year.

Members of Congress, from the House and Senate, also will receive a little bump, as their annual salary will go from $174,000 to 174,900. Leadership in Congress, including the speaker of the House, will likewise get an increase.

    With havin so much written content do you ever
    run into any problems of plagorism or copyright infringement?
    My website has a lot of completely unique content I’ve
    either authored myself or outsourced but it appears a
    lot of it is popping it up all over the web without
    my permission. Do you know any methods to help protect against
    content from being stolen? I’d certainly appreciate it.
