There is a question that I would like to ask. If the people in the White House that are of our quote unquote " LEADERS " , If they would give up a third of their yearly income, how close to paying off the NATIONAL DEBT would we be. ESPECIALLY beginning with the President and all the way down. Here's what I have found that the President makes a year.
Traditionally, the President is the highest-paid public employee. President Obama currently earns $400,000 per year, along with a $150,000 expense account, a $100,000 nontaxable travel account and $19,000 for entertainment. The most recent raise in salary was approved by Congress and President Bill Clinton in 1999 and went into effect in 2001; prior to the change, the President earned $200,000, plus expense accounts.
Now add to that all of those who are below him and it becomes massive the cost for a group of paid screw ups.
Now if I can make it on my $40.000 ------ $65.000 IF I'M LUCKY to have a job.
THEN WHY DO THEY NEED SO MUCH MONEY AND WHAT IN THE HELL CAN THEY SPEND THAT MUCH MONEY ON.
Let's begin reducing our NATIONAL DEBT by reducing their income as they have done to us, and putting it towards the debt they are so willing to yell about. THEY'RE the leaders, THEN LEAD BY EXAMPLE.
