By JAVIER MANJARRESFreshman Republican Congressman Ron DeSantis continues to buck the establishment through his sponsorship of yet another bill that would sequester congressional pay and revoke the federal pay increases that were stipulated in an Executive Order by President Obama.
According to DeSantis, his latest bill (H.R. 273) was included into the latest continuing resolution (C.R.) that was sent over from the House to the Senate and the measure could possibly be included in the final continuing resolution. We covered DeSantis’ first bill that challenged Obama’s pay increase for non-military federal employees-
The take away here is that the bill overturns President Obama’s executive order that implemented “an across-the-board pay hike for non-military federal employees, including Members of Congress, members of the President’s cabinet and the Vice President, Joe Biden.’ This is significant because it sends a message to President Obama that he needs to tread lightly and not continue the egregious overstepping of his powers as President.- Shark Tank
If the measure does make the cut, DeSantis believes that his bill will be signed into law by President Obama.
