    The fat B agrees to cut everything except the bloated Federal public system...while the country is going down the drain, all they can think of and agree on, besides stealing, is increasing their salaries...including the fat B....15.5 % , when official inflation was 6.52% for 2014. Government handouts have been increased by 10% ; minimum wage by about 11% ; salaries and pensions 6%......fantastic !
