Well here's something else I did not expect to see in the news:

Quote:
President Trump said Friday he’s reconsidering whether to freeze a scheduled pay raise for more than 2 million civilian federal employees, a day after he announced plans to kill the pay raise.

I wonder if the political calculus of the upcoming elections factored into his thinking. Of course by now we should have learned it is impossible to read too much into his statements.

Someone got it thru his exceedingly thick skull that he CAN NOT do what he was cavalierly proposing. Not without vetoing the Appropriations Bill.

Still no update on this. I wonder if he just meant he would not veto any bill that did have it. Sounds like there is some motion in the House to also support a raise to go along with the Senate version.
