    Fewer than 100 employees working for the president earn combined wages that exceed 32 million dollars. Love that austerity.

    Comments? LOL, what am I saying, sure there will be comments.

    Not saying they should work for free, but Obama wants to go after executive pay in the private sector, and apparently overlooks that some of his chosen few are also paid allot of money.

    And three million is quite allot of money to pay for obviously poor performance.

    You are confusing how much they earn and how much the government pays them. Alot of them choose not to get paid by the government, so free is a good number. By why shouldnt executive pay be taxed? They pay the lowest tax rates of the top 75%.

    One post says 32 million and another says 3 million. I going with it 32 instead of 3 because with less than 100 (say 80) 3 million would be a pretty good deal at $37,500.

    Got a source Bob, I am curious as to whom made what and the lay out of it?

    I understand sarcasm perfectly well. I don't see how "Obama's" (see what I did there?) spending would make it good (or bad) working for him.

    EDIT: I confused the two threads I was browsing. My apologies.

    Rush Limbaugh is the source.

    Cmon Bob can you support anything you post here? Or do you just make this stuff up as you go? We get it you think Democrats and Obama sucks and thats great however you have yet to articulate your dislike nor can you support your assertions with any citations or links or hell anything other than personal opinion

    Well bob, without a verifiable source this smells of nonsense.

    You wouldn't be implying that the US government is paying salaries to the tune of 32 million for these 32 employees, are you?

    I very strongly suspect that this is not the case, and that this is yet another skewed statistic made to make claims that re not true.

    Maxey's been repeatedly challenged to cite a source but he hasn't. Probably because he heard it on Limbaugh's radio rant, which is actually fairly compelling evidence that it's not true.

    In fact, Obama's 454 aides received total compensation of $37,121,463 (average < $82,000 ea.).
