    Roll back Bushes tax cuts for the rich NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Congress needs to roll back the Francis-Bacon law (?) that guarantees that all gov't jobs pay union wages (called the prevailing wage) even in areas where there is no union. A waste of tax payer $'s.
    Think about it.
    No increase for SS because no increase in COL, but congress will get their $3,500 increase. And, most federal employees will get a raise because they have been on the job for another year, no other logical reason.

    • Obama is currently pushing for 50B for infrastructure stimulus..ALL wages by law will be Davis-Bacon wages...No small independent non union contractors will stand a prayer of receiving these contracts...Obama should roll back Davis-Bacon in this case as Bush did after Katrina, however Obama never met a union he didn't love...
