While Normal Americans Go Unemployed, Obama’s White House Staff Makes Over $37 Million

What recession? People are making big money in this economy, without even having to do productive work, thanks to all the cushy positions on Comrade Obama’s massive White House staff:

The challenging Obama era and 9.1% national unemployment rate do not include the 454 people now helping President Obama do presidential things.

This crowd is being paid a total of $37,121,463 this year. That’s up seven staff members and nearly $4 million from 2008, the last year of George W. Bush’s presidency.

Fully 141 Obama aides — or nearly one-in-three — earn more than $100,000 a year. That’s also up from the 130 with that scale salary in Bush’s last year.

Twenty-one Obama aides earn the top-dollar $172,200. …

The 2011 White House salary report does not include mention of the 41 unidentified Obama staff members who owe the Internal Revenue Service $831,000 in back taxes.

You can see why Obama insists on raising taxes and the debt ceiling, having all these bloated salaries to pay to people not known for paying taxes themselves.
