"Trump Cuts Scheduled Federal Pay Raise, Citing “Serious Economic Conditions” in the Country"

"So which is it? The best economy in the history of economies or a national economic emergency? Either way, somebody’s lying."
I can't believe how stupid RepCon Americans are.
Sorry RepCons you won't be getting the full raise. Big govt employed socialists!

"Cutting the 2.5 percent raise set for 2021 to 1 percent for millions of federal workers seems a bit austere in the face of such self-proclaimed boom times. Even more absurdly, Trump is justifying ordering the cut on the grounds that the country is in the midst of a “national emergency or serious economic conditions affecting the general welfare,” which the White House says authorizes the president to “implement alternative plans for pay adjustments.”

Trump worried?

Good.
Government workers are overpaid and get pensions worth millions.
Working for the government should not be so lucrative.

In reality it is both, depending on your level of wealth. Never better (in my lifetime) for the 1%, quite good for the upper middle class, lower upper and flat to crappy for everyone else. The true emergency comes when we can no longer fund the debt. The kind off cut Trump is doing is political and will have no real impact on anything other than the workers.

"Over thousands of years, only violent events have significantly lessened inequality. The "Four Horsemen" of leveling—mass-mobilization warfare, transformative revolutions, state collapse, and catastrophic plagues—have repeatedly destroyed the fortunes of the rich."

Stupid RepCons don't realize how serious it can get. Pitchforks & guillotines!
Millions of poor,pissed off,will screw up the wealthy's set of living arrangements.
