As we have previously covered here, the staffers that followed Hilda Solis from Capitol Hill to the Department of Labor, have struck it rich. In the Bush administration, the pay raise cap was 20%. In the Hope and Change administration, it appears to be infinite, with some staffers receiving pay increases of nearly 100%! Is this the change that America wanted? Did the average American receive pay increases of nearly 100% in the past year? Is the government still running a deficit, while bankrupting taxpayers? Those in government are blatantly disregarding reality, leaving the taxpayers with the tab of their malfeasance.
