House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer, D-Md., this morning took the House floor to denounce a bill steeply hiking the pension contributions for new and rehired federal employees. But he didn’t stop there. Hoyer’s stemwinder of a speech turned into a condemnation of “the most anti-federal worker Congress that I have served in.”
Hoyer also says the 0.5 percent pay raise proposed by President Obama is pretty much dead, and that House Republicans have no intention of breaking the pay freeze. So get ready to tighten your belts for a third year.
