Today’s presidential executive order

Hi all,
I read in the news this morning that our president has just signed an executive order to not give us a pay raise this year. Let me remind you that the president has no authority over congress, and if they pass legislation to give us a pay raise, it will happen in spite of this executive order. The international is advocating for the 1.9% raise (actually only a 1% decrease, for the cost of living adjustment is 2.85%) and although it might not happen immediately in the new congressional session, I am confident that it will happen.
