Dennis Ross, chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform subcommittee, said at a hearing of the panel Wednesday

President Barack Obama’s two-year pay freeze for federal workers, implemented in December, “wasn’t really a freeze” because it didn’t include all increases, he said. Ross also pointed out that the president’s 2012 budget calls for adding 15,000 federal workers.
