Trump Just Gave a HUGE Gift to Our Military Men and Women While Pissing Off the Feds

4

Under President Trump’s budget proposal, our military men and women, who give so much of themselves to preserve our freedom, are getting a raise.

And that raise will not be affected by the cut the President will give to Federal employees.  Civilian federal employees were expecting to get a raise, too, of 1.9%.  This would have been an automatic raise, and include and an additional cost of living raise. But Trump has determined that is not appropriate.

They will still get a raise, just not as much as anticipated.

Trump explained in a letter to Paul Ryan and Mike Pence, that he has authority to change federal salaries in times of “national emergency or serious economic conditions affecting the general welfare.”  He also said that the automatic raise that would have happened would not leave enough money in the federal budget to maintain “support for key Federal priorities such as those that advance the safety and security of the American people.”

While I hate to see anyone not be paid appropriately for their work, I trust that the President has our best interests at heart.  And our safety and security is clearly his priority.  I’m very happy about how he also prioritizes our service men and women and their families.  They sacrifice so much for our freedom, they deserve our respect and pay.

Trump wrote “I strongly support our men and women in uniform, who are the greatest fighting force in the world and the guardians of American freedom.”

  1. Most government workers get enough mony and perks for sitting on their azz 8 hrs. a day (if they even stay 8 hrs) and so far the Military and the TAX PAYERS have been thrown on the back burner after Obummer spent billions of $$$ on vacations and the Government allowed it . The really sad part is they are on a dream vacation now (you are paying for TP) and the horrible disasters mean nothing as long as they get to keep their lifestyle for FREE – HEAR ME – FREE time to stop them once and for all . GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP

  2. I completely agree with Our President Trump. Our so,divers are receiveing an extremely low wage for the work they are doing for Our entire country. They need a larger pay raise and better benefits. Our government employees have been robbing us blind with their substantial pay raises. This has to stop now !!!!!! A must.

  3. Yes I agree, they make too much money now, for doing nothing to help President Trumps and the American people’s agenda! Why pay a bunch of
    Negative congressman a raise, they have earned a demotion! Thank you!,
