Dr. Coburn Applauds President Obama’s Call for a Federal Salary Freeze

President Obama’s call for a federal pay freeze is a welcome step that will show taxpayers the federal government is willing to sacrifice and lead by example. Workers in the private sector are right to be concerned that federal salaries and benefits are, on average, twice as generous. I would also encourage agency heads to take steps now to freeze federal pay that do not require congressional approval,” Dr. Coburn said.
