Its Your Money and Obama,Reid & Pelosi is Pissing it Away.

From the Washington Examiner here is yet one more example of the Federal Government run amok under Obama and Pelosi and Reid. Folks its your money that these gangsters are stealing, every year you work even more time just to pay
ever increasing taxes while each dollar you earn buys less. People why aren’t you in the streets demanding these retribution from these gangsters. Every year your quality of life decreases while these maggots spend your hard earned dollars. How about Pelosi spending $18k a month for her new office, Roll Call reported Monday that Pelosi’s new office space costs almost double that of the next-highest rental office.

Is she royalty


Bonus bonanza for federal workers
Examiner Editorial
June 16, 2010
President Obama, shown surrounded by White House aides, instituted a pay freeze for top aides. He’s done little to control government pay beyond this symbolic gesture. (Pete Souza/AP, The White House )

Under the Obama administration, the government is doing such a good job that it’s decided to reward itself. Last year, Uncle Sam paid out $408 million in bonuses to 1.3 million federal workers, according to the Asbury Park Press, which obtained the information through a Freedom of Information Act request. That’s about $80 million more than the previous year. About one in four federal workers received a bonus, and awards ranged from $25 to, in the case of one lucky State Department worker, $94,500.

That $408 million figure only counts bonuses that were handed out to about 65 percent of the federal work force. The FOI request didn’t cover awards handed out by the Defense and Treasury departments, security agencies, the White House, Congress and various other federal agencies and commissions. In 2008, the last year information was available, the Department of Defense alone handed out $92 million in bonuses to its 687,000 employees.

Federal bonuses are being doled out liberally, even as federal salaries are exploding. From December 2007 through June 2009, the number of federal workers earning six figures increased from 14 to 19 percent. In 2008, average federal compensation, including pay and benefits, was $119,982 — considerably more than the $59,909 average in the private sector, according to the Commerce Department’s Bureau of Economic Analysis. In the midst of a brutal economic downturn that saw millions of jobs lost and unemployment soar above 10 percent, the Office of Personnel Management data shows the federal workforce actually added nearly 100,000 jobs from December 2008 to December 2009.

In theory, introduction of bonuses and pay-for-performance measures in the federal workforce was a positive reform. However, this boom in federal bonuses suggests an “all carrot and no stick” approach to federal performance. For bureaucrats, job security is a non-issue, and they already earn twice as much as an average American just for showing up to work.

Shortly after he assumed office last year, Obama instituted a pay freeze for top White House Aides earning more than $100,000, saying this would “restore that faith in government without which we cannot deliver the changes we were sent here to make.” The president made it clear that he knows egregious federal salaries are a problem, yet he’s done little beyond this symbolic gesture to address the problem. Actually doing something to rein in the runaway federal bureaucracy would be change taxpayers can believe in.
