Obama's Aides' Earnings Through the Ceiling: Do They Even Care about Average Amercans?
Original post made by The Answer is TEA on Mar 4, 2013
Deep inside a new Government Accountability Office audit of the 321 presidential appointees working for the government are details showing that the 94 who Obama works closest with earn a range of $120,000 to $172,000, a top paycheck that is more than double the median income in Washington, the nation's highest income region.
When education level, experience, and specific skill sets are added, Obama's appointees earn approx 1/6 of what their counterparts earn in the private sector. But these latters statistics are of no interest whatsoever except to those who would want to irrationally defend the President's penchant for assigning way totally high wages to his advisers and assistants.
