Bush Wants to Limit Federal Pay Raise
Giving civilian federal workers a pay raise of more than 2 percent next year would jeopardize the war on terrorism, President Bush said Wednesday.
"Such cost increases would threaten our efforts against terrorism or force deep cuts in discretionary spending or federal employment to stay within budget," Bush wrote.
Bush announced he was using his authority to change workers' pay structure in times of "national emergency or serious economic conditions."
Let's just have some more tax cuts for the rich then! Oh..and why not start another costly 'pre-empty' war. I suppose that he can indicate 'serious economic conditions' when it serves his rhetoric, yet continue to insist that because of his tax cuts the economy is improving. He can do all this and lie too, because he's the pRes! Impeach him.
