I noticed the article did not say what was going to happen to the pay of
congressional staffers and members of congress; previously they were excluded
from pay freezes.
Remember that the Tea Party hero Jason Chaffetz gave his staffers a 8% pay raise
as well as a cost of living raise and bonuses last year.
Just another reminder as to why I left government employment. I got tired of
working and no pay raises to keep up with inflation but always money to give
away around the world.
