Mr. ISSA. Mr. Speaker, I note, once again, that this is a half a percent that will not be increased by this action--half a percent--so on $100,000 it's $500 of a pay raise that will not occur for Federal workers, and, in fact, the sky is not falling if we choose not to have that happen this year.

With that, I'd like to yield 1 1/2 minutes to the gentleman from Texas (Mr. Flores).
