Federal Pay Raise and Spending
Recently, The US House of Representatives passed HR273 which would eliminate the 2013 statutory pay increase for Congress, the Executive Branch and other federal employees. The legislation was in response to an executive order issued by President Obama creating a pay raise for non-military Federal employees.
“At a time when federal spending is out of control and far too many people are still struggling to find work, the government should not be giving itself a raise. The bill would save taxpayers $11 billion.” – Congressman Alan Nunnelee
Congressman Alan Nunnelee
Having just been appointed to the House Budget Committee, Congressman Alan Nunnelee released a newsletter on our government’s spending problem. “This week, at my first hearing as a member of the Budget Committee, we heard testimony from Congressional Budget Office Director Doug Elmendorf. His remarks made clear what you and I know: we have an enormous spending problem,” said Nunnelee.

Although the donation is small, with multiple contributions it builds into something significant. The result creates a major asset for our Party.” – Roman Galey, SouthGroup Insurance.
