We need our pay too!!

I don't understand economics I guess. We have to cut spending in some areas, yet we give these people a raise? Outrageous. There HAS to be a paradigm shift in politics soon.

That is crazy. But then the world is upside down in an altered state. Thanks for sharing. I still signed the petition. Just to show how pissed off I am at the whole issue.

I want to know if it includes not only the congress but the senate too. If they r not included in this pay raise, it should be known that none of them get a raise, not now or in the future, until they get the country back in order including getting our credit rating back to where it was before they ruined it. NO RAISE FOR ANY IF THEM UNTIL THEN. When we all agree to that, I'll sign!!

Lynn, it is al federal employees so yes senators are included. Some senators are asking Obama to rescind the order.

How is this going to stop anything. I've signed petition after petition to see nothing done yet again. I'm beginning to wonder if this is all just a scam to get likes on friggin fb. I believe completely and totally what this petition stands for but as I have said....where will it be sent after the signatures are obtained, who will listen to our voices....no one is listening. They are doing what they please up there in Washington with no concern of what it does to the American people. They...

Nancy DeDon, I am committed to sending this to the President, Leaders of the House and Senate, as well as my reps here in New Hampshire. I have already written Kelly Ayotte and the other federal representatives. No scam. Please sign it and share it.

As long as it doesn't include the social security and disability payments. They have put them as one on the bottom of a bill so to sneak this end. In other words when they get a raise so do the other. They should be separate but are not. Actually their pay should be cut. But I'm sure they want do that without it being at our expense.

Nicki, it does not. This petition clearly calls out Schedule 5 and Schedule 6 employees only as defined in the law. That is only senior executives from the Vice President down to Senators.

Okay I will still support it but I still feel we need to petition for the president and his family to stop taking vacations and getting all these luxuries that most of us have never had on our tab. I mean he does have a JOB to do. How can he do it when he isn't there? Yes, in normal jobs you earn vacation time but I have never heard of an employer paying for the employees whole vacation. Its just crazy to be raising taxes because this country is so far in debt and than turn around and take...

Its just crazy to be raising taxes because this country is so far in debt and than turn around and take the money that we are all told is to help keep us from getting in deeper and turn around and raise the pay of these idiots, wheres the logic in that.

They say they want to cut spending so I say this would be the first place to start!

sounds like a nobrainer if they were actually concerned beginning with the leader (that would be the president) on down. uh I think this might indicate they do not care...and showing by example is pretty clear....4 million dollars for a vacation,,,I dont care if you are the king of the universe if you did not work for it its not yours to spend...it is a loan in exchange for commitment to follow the oath under the Constitution.

They have a lot of work to do and a lot of money to save, before they ask for a pay raise, they are all way over paid right now. Look at the budget crunch they have put us in, and they think they deserve a pay raise for that. When will I get my next pay raise?

How much are we in debt? And they have the nerve to think that they deserve a pay raise. They really are idiots!!!

Why would those who have created our current economic crisis (Fannie-Freddie were intentionally protected from additional regulation by lying testimonies and the national debt is increasing) receive a pay raise or additional benefits.

What do they want a raise for, sitting on their donkeys! I had to work for my raise and still didn't get it half the time!
