After Discovering Government Workers Would Get A 26% Pay Raise, Trump Did Something Totally Unexpected

It’s no secret that President Donald Trump is a man who knows how to conduct business. As a seasoned businessman for decades, he knows just what strategies work, and which strategies do not. His extensive knowledge has served well since he has been in the Oval Office. It is for these reasons that when President Trump was informed that government workers were about to receive a huge raise, he immediately went into action.

With the way the law is right now things are extremely skewed. The pay scale that makes the decision as to what federal employee salaries are going to be in 2018 was set to raise these employee salaries by nearly 26 percent. The White House estimates that this would cost American taxpayers around $26 billion.

Luckily, President Trump wasn’t happy about the discovery. He decided to lower their raise into a more normal range. The announcement was made that federal employees would now be seeing approximately a 1.9% raise instead of the massive 26% raise they were originally up for.

“Title 5, United States Code, authorizes me to implement alternative pay plans for pay increases for civilian Federal employees covered by the General Schedule and certain other pay systems if, because of “national emergency or serious economic conditions affecting the general welfare,” I view the adjustments that would otherwise take effect as inappropriate.”

When Leftists try to tell you next time that Trump isn’t looking out for Americans, remind them just how wrong they are. He saved Americans from funding $26 billion in raises to federal employees. And, as President of the United States of America, he has the authority to make such a decision fairly. American taxpayers are already being robbed. Why should we have to pay even more to support thieves in Washington? This law would have done exactly that, stolen even more out of our pockets.

Government employees in addition to union workers are obviously not happy about President Trump’s decision, but that’s simply too bad. They can’t sit back and expect American citizens to happily fund their lavish lifestyles. The idea of even entertaining the thought of a 26% raise for federal employees is totally ludicrous.

Richard Thissen, the president of the National Active and Retired Federal Employees Association stated, “while federal employees will appreciate the raise, an average increase of 1.9 percent is the minimum required to prevent federal pay from declining further, and more rapidly, below market than the current 35 percent wage disparity between public- and private-sector wages.”

President Trump knew exactly what he was doing. He was saving the American people from funding extreme raises to people who didn’t deserve them. This is our hard earned tax money, and we deserve to keep as much of it as possible. We are already being robbed. Why should we open our wallets and hand them everything we have?

This kind of move would have never been made by former President Barack Obama. Now, Leftists are making Trump out to be the bad guy… but what else is new? While everyone loves getting a raise, a 26% raise is completely out of the realm of possibility. Way to go, Mr. President! Thank you for keeping more of my money in my pocket!
