White House Top 20 Raises…So Much for ‘Shared Sacrifice’

The military got a whopping 1.4% pay raise, which will be eaten up by taxes. Military retirees like myself, got zilch.

    So much for “fact check”:

    Obama famously instituted a salary freeze for all White House staffers earning more than $100,000 on his first day in office because “during this period of economic emergency, families are tightening their belts, and so should Washington.”

    But there wasn’t a lot of belt-tightening for the rest of the staff: We crunched the numbers and found that, of the 344 White House employees who were listed on the payroll in both White House’s 2009 and 2010 salary reports, 253—or 74%—got raises in 2010. And among that lucky overwhelming majority, the average raise was 9%. And plenty of people making more than $100,000 a year did get a raise as long as a title change came with it.


    It’s accurate.
