Freezing Federal Pay

Obama's pay freeze on federal employees is precisely the kind of meaningless and unreturned bipartisanism that has alienated the Democratic base. It is an anti-worker maneuver designed to please the David Broders of the world. It does nothing to fight the deficit. It makes lives a little harder for American workers. It splits the Democratic Party. It allows Republicans to seize even more momentum in their aggressive program to return America to the Gilded Age.

Another terrible move by Obama. My disappointment only grows.
