House GOP Moves to Block Pay Raise for Fed Workers

Ad Feedback

The House of Representatives is voting to block a pay raise for federal workers proposed by President Obama.

A pay freeze on the nation's 2 million civilian federal workers would save $11 billion.

Democrats, along with some Republicans, say government workers are being unfairly singled out for punishment by lawmakers, saying they've more than done their part to reduce the federal deficit.

But Conservatives say well-compensated federal employees can afford it.

The legislation is expected to pass the GOP-led House Friday.
