Biden Insults Struggling Americans, Demands Massive Pay Raise for Federal Workers

While average Americans struggle to put food on the table and pay their bills, Democrat President Joe Biden just told them all to go pound sand.

Biden has submitted paperwork to give federal government workers a massive pay raise.

Biden wants to hand out a 5.2 percent federal pay increase next year while credit card and auto loan delinquencies are skyrocketing.

This comes as the admin revises rosy economic numbers months after the fact to hide the truth from the American public.

But no amount of spin can hide what is happening at the grocery store.

If it isn’t blocked by Congress, Biden’s pay raise would be the largest since 1981 when President Jimmy Carter authorized a 9.1 percent raise.

The federal government needs to shrink its workforce, not hire more people and hand out massive raises to current workers.

As Republican Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) pointed out, Biden’s economic policies are “the very reason why Americans are struggling to put gas in their cars or food on the table.”

Biden said:

“Specifically, I have determined that for 2024, the across-the-board base pay increase will be 4.7 percent, and locality pay increases will average 0.5 percent, resulting in an overall average increase of 5.2 percent for civilian Federal employees, consistent with the assumption in my 2024 Budget.

“We must attract, recruit, and retain a skilled workforce with fair compensation in order to keep our Government running, deliver services, and meet our Nation’s challenges today and tomorrow.

“This alternative pay plan decision will continue to allow the Federal Government to employ a well‑qualified Federal workforce on behalf of the American people, keeping pace with prior wage growth in the labor market.”

The last consumer price index reading before Carter’s August 1980 order, when he was in the throes of a tough campaign against Ronald Reagan, showed prices had risen 14.3 percent on average over the prior year.

Inflation recently has been on a downswing, declining from 9.1 percent in June 2022 to 3 percent in June 2023, though it turned up again slightly in July, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Federal salaries are allocated in multiple buckets, with base pay applying across the board and additional pay generally provided based on the cost of living in the location of the job.
