Trump Cancels Pay Raises for Federal Employees
Posted by Mary Catherine Dunphy (+2850) 24 days ago
So, last year Trump (and his Republican buddies in Congress) gave their billionaire friends and donors (both human and corporate) a big tax break; and now this year, Trump figures he can save $25 billion by cutting raises for federal employees, as one way to put our nation on a fiscally sustainable course. Go figure!

Oh, and this just in:

"Nearly 60 percent of women in America want impeachment proceedings to be initiated against Donald Trump, according to a new poll, while overall disapproval of the president has hit an all-time high."

"Trump says he'll 'study' his decision to cancel federal pay raises"

I long for the days when we had a president who would study things before opening their mouth. Somehow I think of great leaders as being people who make informed decisions.
