The White House released its annual report to Congress on staff salaries. At 4:39 p.m. on Friday.
A quick review found the White House payroll appears to have grown since last year, going from $37.1 million in 2011 to $37.8 million in 2012. The number of employees listed also grew -- from 454 last year to 468 in 2012.

Pretty soon the only people better off today than four years ago will be those in Congress, White House and ... Gitmo.
Has Moochelle hired her ‘belt adjustment specialist’ yet?

I’m actually pretty amazed at how low the salaries are; tough to actually live on $40K in DC, and there are many in the $40-50K range.
Of course it’s real easy to get whatever kids out of college you want as junior staffers due to the prestige.

Valid point. I guess releasing the age of each person would be a violation of privacy.

I didn’t see a list of the amount of kickbacks and under the table deals.

I wonder if the Obama administration practices gender equity/fair pay? Or if women are paid less and have lower status jobs?

("a shadow...draped nobly in the folds of a gorgeous eloquence.")
""I wonder if anyone has successfuly transferred the text file into an excel spreadsheet...?"" Each year since 2009 has been presented in a different manner. If you look at whitehouse.gov., president's schedule page, you will see only 2009 report. It's after you open that, that 2010, 2011 and 2012 show up. 2009 started with 487 employees, 2010-469, 2011-454 and no count is given on the 2012 report but I guess someone here added them up. Jarrett is shown each year with the $172,200 salary and I checked Gibbs (before Carney) and that's what he was paid too - same as Carney now. I still want to know WHY employees of the administration get to spend their time on the reelection campaign of obozo while we pay their salaries. Valerie Jarrett just spoke to a gathering of black journalists and black columnists last weekend according to this: ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ DeWayne Wickham, a writer for USA Today, reported on the event for the Coshocton Tribune. He wrote: "Jarrett touted the sentence reduction for crack-cocaine disparity as a way to build a broad Obama re-election coalition, including African-Americans. "To do this, Obama supporters need to unabashedly trumpet what the president has done for blacks such as increased funding for education [black colleges & universities only, as mentioned above] , universal health care, and a sharp reduction in the sentencing disparity for possession of crack cocaine instead of powder, all things that Jarrett said have disproportionately benefited them. Jarretts cocaine remarks were not covered in the few mainstream media reports on the New Orleans event. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Sounds as tho' she's engaged in the reelection campaign to me. AND how many others are also doing the work of the campaign? The blacks get the attention of a 1/2 black president. When do the whites get the attention of the 1/2 white president? Never, I guess! The reelection campaign and the DNC owe US money for the use of Air Force One and the salaries of personnel in the WH involved with the campaign!!
“”I hear that guy from Barnum and Bailey Circus tents is making an effing killing!””
If you mean “the” Carney - yeah - $172,200 per year - same as Valerie Jarrett. The 2012 report is difficult to read but I didn’t see anyone else making that much just scanning it.
To: Thank You Rush
Sorry - looked again and John Brennan makes that amount and someone in the “C’s” but I stopped looking - as I said, it really strains the eyes the way it’s reported for this year. I guess it was planned that way.
