Hoyer: Obama Pay Freeze Should Apply to Military Too

Monday, 29 November 2010 05:04 PM EST

Outgoing House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, says President Barack Obama’s move Monday to freeze the pay of civilian federal employees should apply to military personnel as well. To be sure, military and civilian personnel serving in Afghanistan, Iraq, and other life-threatening spots should be exempt, he says, according to The Hill.
