Michele Bachmann Slams Dems For Voting to Give Government Employees $30 Billion 10 Year Raise (Video)

It’s the worst recession since the Great Depression– Everyone must sacrifice. Everyone must have some skin in the game.
…Unless, of course, you’re a government employee.

Democrats voted yesterday in favor of a 1.4 percent pay raise for civilian federal employees proposed by the Obama administration.

Via BrietbartTV:

The Hill reported: The House voted 227-183 to table a motion to recommit a defense authorization bill to kill a 1.4 percent pay raise for civilian federal employees proposed by the Obama administration. The cuts were picked under the GOP’s “YouCut” initiative, and was offered by Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.). Republicans said the cuts would have saved $30 billion over 10 years.

For the record… According to Cato Institute: In June 2009, total compensation per hour was $39.66 in the public sector, which was 45 percent greater than the average $27.42 per hour in the private sector. The public sector advantage in average wages was 34 percent, while the advantage in benefits was a huge 70 percent… Average compensation in the private sector was $59,909 in 2008, including $50,028 in wages and $9,881 in benefits. Average compensation in the public sector was $67,812, including $52,051 in wages and $15,761 in benefits.

Public sector workers have a substantial pay advantage over private sector workers. (Cato)
