  •  The COLA thing strikes me as fundamentally (5+ / 0-)

    wrong on all counts. I see no reason to freeze wages on Federal workers. I see every reason to try to do something about the wealthiest few percent. Did OFA actually promote COLA? What was the rationale presented? I've heard a few arguments that are pro-COLA, but only in terms of that it won't "harm" anyone. Okay. But it's still not sensible in terms of needlessly fixing the wages of a non-elite sector of the working class. It's tone-deaf in that it does not help anyone, and it also is politically not going to run well with many Democrats, IMHO.
