Obama's been "turning on the base" since 2008
(Hi, Donna! [waves]) First, he threw women on the bus. Then, he threw the working class under the bus. After using the career "progressives" to suppress single payer during the HCR debacle, he threw them under the bus. So, now he throws the Federal workforce under the bus... And Versailles notices!
The headline in Time: "Obama Turns On The Base -- Freezes Federal Pay."
NOTE Unless.... Obama's base is the banksters. Then the headline makes sense. Throwing people out of work so that they lose their homes, can't afford insurance, get sick, and die is, in fact, what "turns on" banksters -- even more than hookers and blow. Via FDL.
