Freezing only serves to legitimize the bloated wasteful waste that needs to be eliminated.
"The White House estimates that the freeze, which does not affect military personnel, will save $2 billion for the remainder of the 2011 fiscal year, $28 billion over the next five years and more than $60 billion over the next 10 years."

how about freezing congress' pay...
Funny the ONLY times the Federal workers salaries are frozen is when a DEMOCRAT was in office...

Wow, i didn't even see that typo until you pointed it out!
I'm not quite sure about my numbers, but i can say that my father has been with the gov't for more than 20 years, with his current organization for about 7 years. He's only recently gone over $100,000 for a salary. Full time worker btw. He does budgets. My mom just entered from the private sector and makes a lot less. So, i'm not sure where that $150,000 number is coming from.edit on 29-11-2010 by mossme89 because: (no reason given)
