One Response to Obama orders raise for federal government employees

  1. Tandy Ryken says:

    When will the government understand that people don’t want these people to be involved in medical care. Just about every single big brother program is a economic wreck, and tax payers are usually eventually left holding the bag. If these people can not complete the task they have been elected to do, they may find out in November that us residents tend to be tired of their disappointments and definately will get rid of all of them.
