Joe Biden has denied the existence of inflation since last year. But anyone who has bought groceries anytime soon isn’t fooled.
Americans are struggling to make ends meet. Growing inflation has many fearing a painful recession is around the corner–leading to layoffs and lost wages.
But never fear! While businesses are getting hit with higher taxes, supply chain chaos, and inflation–government workers will be getting a huge raise.
From Daily Wire:
President Joe Biden is planning to give federal employees a substantial pay raise in 2023.
In letters to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Vice President Kamala Harris in her capacity as President of the Senate, 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.
So, while most Americans are wondering how they will put gas in their cars, Biden is dishing out more money for government workers.
Hey, to be fair, we are not blinking at anyone getting a bump in pay. But these people work for the government.
Meaning their pay raise comes at your expense. As Biden raises taxes and ignores business-crushing inflation, he is rewarding government workers.
While inflation has amounted to a pay decrease for most, the swamp is seeing its wages go up.
As someone who worked for the federal government for years, I can say: that most of them need a kick in the pants, not a raise.
These are the same people who delay your tax refund, push regulation that hampers small businesses, and drag out permits that businesses need to break ground.
People who aren’t helping our economy thrive but are instead dragging it down.
And we find it particularly ironic that Biden is giving most of them a 4.6% raise while denying inflation.
Companies often provide raises to keep up with inflation. Biden’s raise gets it close (although inflation is around 9%–a historic high).
Meaning, that Biden was forced to issue these raises because inflation is too big to ignore.
Yet he has been dismissing it for over a year? Come on, man.
- Joe Biden announced a 4% raise for federal government employees.
- This comes as inflation cuts American workers’ income.
- Biden had previously dismissed inflation as not a major issue.
