34. A two 2% increase is not a pay cut.
Calling this a "pay cut" is a LIE, plain and simple. It's Neo-Con tactics, use spin to incite an emotionally knee-jerk response. If the OP was honest he/she would have posted "the regular wage increase was reduced by 0.4% to 2%", but "OMG, Obama is cutting wages" is guaranteed to incite the Obama-haters into their usual rage. If you want to criticize Obama for this that is fine, but if you LIE about it, that is NOT fine, that is Freeper behavior.
