Salary of the US President...$400,000.
Salary of retired US Presidents...$180,000
Salary of House/Senate...$174,000.
Salary of Speaker of House...$223,500.
Salary of Majority/Minority Leaders...$193,400.
Average US Salary...$33,000 to $77,000.
Maybe our elected officials should make an average salary too...
It's a time of sacrifice after all.
Do a million of us have to march in protest in DC before they all get the message?
We should post taxpayer funded bank bonuses on here as well so that we can see droves of hypocrites defend those.
I think that the Founders would ALL be spinning in their graves about the pension of elected officials. It's really ridiculous when you think about it, and completely counter-intuitive to the citizen-legislator that the Founders all envisioned.
the president’s salary is a pittance compared to what they go through. I don’t begrudge the salaries of congress or CEO’s. I wouldn’t want their jobs. My concern is that they sought these offices and simply need to do their jobs.
We done went and let the Feudal system get over on us again!
I, for one, would like to hear someone talk about Obama’s and the Liberal Progressive’s voting base making some sacrifices. It seems they just never happen to make the cut. It’s always seniors and the job creators(those evil rich!) who are asked to give things up.
I want to see drastic cuts in NINJA loans, Food Stamps, Welfare (especially for illegals) and and huge penalties in Medical funding for those who indulge themselves in the highly risky lifestyles of Qu@@rism, prostitution and the porn industry. And no American should have to finance, with their tax dollars, any organization that favors one group over another in pay and job benefits.
Furthermore, if those with no morals want abortion on demand, they should start foundations with their own money to provide that service. Taxpayers shouldn’t be forced to finance the damnation of the Godless.
If those cuts were made, the Democratic voting base would virtually cease to exist.
I don’t begrudge their salaries either. The point is they get COLA raises while mainstream America isn’t all awhile while groceries/gasoline basic bank fees- sky rocket.
We are being set up to suck off the government teet.
We can all scream and yell on computers no POTUS will change this corruption in senate and the congress.
As well as... Obama will have SEIU/ACORN/Moveon boots on the ground in 2012. I feel we are lulled into a slumber because of Nov elections. Obama did not have boots on the ground he left his fellow commiecrats out in the cold under the bus.
You’re correct they need to do their jobs and not be all special interests and pork. They spend spend spend endlessly.I have had it! What happened to a big bank or the SEIU not being able to buy government? Everyone also ignores that in 06 or 08 was it? we were financially terrorized and manipulated. Soro’s and Oprah cannot should not shall not but the Presidency.
Your post made me remember another VITAL point added to my last post. VOTER ID LAWS need enacted again and voting 2 weeks before by ditzy college kids getting free lap tops to vote the straight Dem party ticket.
When I went to vote in Nov. I did not have to show my ID.
It was quite strange.
