If you're Obama, then your answer to that question is JOE BIDEN.
Yes. You read that correctly.
According to this, the president that is about to take us all over the fiscal cliff issued an executive order (he loves those) to give some FEDERAL WORKERS a raise, including Joe Biden, which, if you ask me, is a big f*cking deal.
Joe's salary was just a tick over 225k last year. Now he'll make just under 232k. And he's not the only one getting more of our tax money to continue making an absolute assular area out of himself.
Congress is getting a $900 pay raise, from 174k to 174,900.
I don't know about you all, but it seems to me that if you were going to point to some of the least productive, poorest performers in the entire country right now, CONGRESS would rank pretty high on the list. They can't even get themselves out of their own "worst case scenario" mess that they put themselves in to prevent everyone's taxes from going up next week.
So yeah. While all of us chumps sit around waiting to see how much smaller our paychecks get after the first of the year, JOE BIDEN and friends are getting raises. Modest raises, sure, but raises nonetheless.
I just lost the remaning speck of interest I had left to be productive today.
