    "If George Bush had done this, the liberals would be hitting the roof!"

    there are many links to the information and much opposition to its truth

    check out how many new federal workers since Obama took office and their rates of pay...  one would have to be crazy, regardless of political party to not be bothered by this

    I never once heard a liberal complain about the money gvt workers make...that is the Republican's domain.

    "Government wages, because they are thought out independently of profit motive, are a very reasonable benchmarks for actual value of work, rather than what is expedient (at the low end) or self-serving (at the high end). Even the lowest government full-timer, with only a high-school diploma, makes a living wage. And that's somehow "not right"? And at the high end...well the President and leader of the free world, with more responsibility and scrutiny than any other human being on earth makes a fraction of what a CEO of a mid-sized corporation makes, let alone a F100. Mind you, we're not talking about the supposed engine of free market capitalism - the opportunity to get rich if you have the imagination to innovate and the courage and energy to pursue your dream. These are guys (mostly) who have risen up through the ranks of bureaucrats at big companies who by and large  have proven themselves ruthless and cunning enough to squeeze as much profit out of an existing idea as possible - while paying themselves extravagantly for the honor."

    I'll take gvt workers any day.

    and just btw: if half the things said about Obama had been said about Bush, the people saying them would be called anti-American traitors.

    The House on Wednesday voted to freeze the pay of federal workers - including members of Congress - for a third consecutive year.

    Right...Obama started this as a good-faith way to help in the recession.

    Now, when are CEO's going to do the same?
