The normal American citizen is struggling.
Daily necessities have become more expensive, utility bills have skyrocketed, the price of gasoline is higher than ever — and the Biden Regime can’t stop spending!
Whether it’s Ukraine’s war efforts or a salary increase for D.C. bureaucrats, Biden has prioritized his globalist allies over the American people.
In letters to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and Vice President Kamala Harris in her capacity, Biden announced his plans to give federal government employees an across-the-board pay raise of 4.1%, with an average locality-based pay raise of 0.5%; meaning some 2.1 million federal employees will receive raises of 4.6%, on average. The pay raises will take effect on January 1, 2023.

Under federal law, if the president wishes to institute a pay raise above and beyond the normal raise, he must submit his plan to Congress by September 1 of the preceding year, including the reasons for instituting the raise. In considering any such raises, the president needs to consider “pertinent economic measures,” including the national GDP, the unemployment rate, the budget deficit, the Consumer Price Index, and the Producer Price Index.
Biden cited a continuing recruitment crisis as the reason for the raise.
Could you imagine why anyone would want to work for the federal government? It comes as no shock that Washington D.C. is struggling to recruit quality staff and are now forcing taxpayers to fund their incentives.
However, Biden’s raise plan can be overridden if Congress passes its own set of raises into law — another reason why Republicans must win back congressional majorities in November.
The raises for government workers come at a time when Americans’ real wages continue to decline. The Americans’ real average hourly earnings dropped 2.7% amid a historic period of massive inflation. While prices for everything go up, wages go down, creating a precarious financial reality for a large portion of the population.
Meanwhile, the Biden administration is attempting to distract the people by fearmongering about “MAGA Republicans” and their “extremist” threats to democracy.
Similar to misinformation, racism, science, and now democracy, the Democrats will manipulate the definition of any buzzword to create a boogeyman out of Republicans.
The Democrats are fanning the flames of civil war.
