      WASHINGTON (AP) — Federal agencies were directed late Friday to hold off enacting pay raises for top administration officials during a government shutdown that has left hundreds of thousands of federal workers without pay.

      The guidance was issued in a memo from Margaret Weichert, the acting director of the Office of Personnel Management.

      The raises were the result of a pay freeze for top federal officials, including the vice president and cabinet secretaries, that was on the verge of expiring because of the shutdown.

      We are an arrogant species, believing our fantasy based "facts" are better than the other person's fake facts.
      If you are wrong, it will be because you are not cynical enough.

        Their pay raises were held up because somebody reported on it. They couldn’t hide it.

      They shouldn’t be getting paid at all during the shutdown.

      They realized they had a major image problem with that.
