CQ Politics | Notepad - Obama Asks Federal Workers to Sacrifice
Citing the current economic recession -- and the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks eight years ago -- President Obama says he will use emergency powers to cut the programmed across-the-board January increase in federal employees' pay from 2.4 percent to 2.0 percent, according to a letter he sent to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., on Monday.

"Emergency powers" that allow Obama to decide what U.S. .gov workers make, eh? Another thing that makes him look like Bush in blackface. Only, if it was that fuckwit Bush doing this, we would have heard a lot more howls of protest. Which would be deserved. And they are deserved in this case. Cut their pay if it's necessary, but do it legitimately, via the legislative process.
