Biden Quietly Signs D.C. Swamp Executive Order – The President Punishes Taxpayers, Rewards Cronies with Pay Raise

What’s Happening:

Don’t believe the media’s claims. We are suffering under inflation, thanks to Joe Biden. Nearly every decision he’s made has hurt the U.S. economy. He weakened the value of the dollar with reckless spending. He’s raised taxes, shut down our energy industry, and refused to fix the supply chain.

Most Americans have suffered a pay decrease, because of what Joe’s done. And signs point that it will get much worse in the coming year. So, what does Biden do–after putting so much pain on Americans? He gives people who barely do anything a pay raise!

From Daily Wire:

President Joe Biden granted federal employees a raise as inflationary pressures and labor shortages pinch the bureaucracy.

According to an executive order that will take effect on January 1, federal employees will receive an overall pay raise of 4.1%, as well as an average locality-based pay raise of 0.5%, indicating that some 2.1 million federal employees will receive average raises of 4.6%…

The federal government spent approximately $215 billion in the fiscal year 2016 compensating federal civilian employees, according to a report from the Congressional Budget Office.

Oh, how lovely. As most Americans watch their pocketbooks shrink, the folks who slow down government agencies will be getting a nice, hefty pay raise. These are the people who audit you, who make your life a living hell. Federal workers enjoy safety from getting fired (thanks to their powerful unions) and do shockingly little to keep their jobs.

They gum up progress with endless paperwork, red tape, and meaningless regulations. They are the ones that hamper private business with stealth taxes. The same people who enforced lockdowns, mask mandates, and vaccine mandates.

These are the people getting raises, while you struggle to figure out how to pay your electricity bill.

Does Joe Biden hate America? This pay raise will end up costing you big time. Some of these federal workers will be pulling down six figures, off of your dime. Meanwhile, Biden smugly ignores ongoing inflation and predictions of a painful recession. What has he done to encourage job growth, low the cost of living for working Americans, or ensure companies hire Americans?

From all appearances, Biden is trying to drive Americans to the poor house.

Key Takeaways:

  • Joe Biden is giving federal workers a 4.6% pay raise in the new year.
  • This comes as inflation rages for nearly two years, hurting Americans.
  • Biden’s policies have triggered runaway inflation and a coming recession.
