As the country is on the verge of going over the “fiscal cliff,” President Obama signed an executive order to end the pay freeze on federal employees. Translation: some federal workers—ranging from the vice president to the Supreme Court and members of Congress—will be getting a raise. Via The Weekly Standard:

According to disclosure forms, Biden made a cool $225,521 last year. After the pay increase, he'll now make $231,900 per year.

Members of Congress, from the House and Senate, also will receive a little bump, as their annual salary will go from $174,000 to 174,900....
