While he was busy complaining about how much money is made by free people in a free market in a free country he gave his staff huge pay increases. How can someone with those ears be so deaf? While the economy stagnates he lives the life of a king, even more egregious, his wife lives like an empress.

Obama is paying off his buddies at every level.
How anyone with an IQ over 80 can support this puppet is beyond the scope of intelligent reasonable thought.
What kind of country do you have when the private sector is eliminated?
Hmm, Social Security recepients are getting a hike too. And so is the military...
Geeee, but nothing like the 500 times what the CEO's make in comparison to the ones who do all the work for them. Go figure.
Must be nice to complain about the communist president while you live like Mussolini!
CEOs don't take their salary from taxpayers whose average income is 40% of the average federal employee. Blah, blah, blah, blah blah blah blah blah - tired of hitting my head against a bitter Art History Major brick wall - heck of a choice there. Big employment possibilities - if only everyone could be made to respect the brilliance of that. Tell me you got a Library Science minor at least.
Here's a news-flash for you, Mr Personal Insult ALL THE TIME.
Politics is for everyone in all walks of life. We all have to live and survive here. Not just YOU and YOURS.
It doesn't take a phd to see what the problem is: Greed.
That is true, the 99% need to quit being so greedy and trying to take other peoples money. Work harder or at all and save your money.
Work harder and save? Do you actually pay attention to the news? We did that. My savings are still fairly well gutted. I got my 401k report. Down once again. The only column that made money was the one where I'm paying back a loan I took, to keep me house, when my husband lost his job; because of the stagnant economy.
I would expect corporations that pay their CEOs mega millions per year to make a profit, so I could make a few pennies. But hey, my savings and our economy should certainly be sacrificed to make sure everyone at the top stays cushy and has fun. You need to watch Inside Job. It's a fascinating look into the world of high finance today. If I conducted business as Wall Street does I'd be sitting in jail for embezzlement and myriad other charges.
Wake up. For the love if America, please, you guys need to set your greed aside and wake up.
This is working hard? http://www.investopedia.com/terms/d/der … axzz1bUo6i
Now the 99% slackers are paying for them
Your ignorance is astounding. Read a book. It might help.

I am not into politics but what would happen if they had to work for minimum wage like everyone else? What would happen if everyone worked for the same pay no matter what they did? These are question from my students, any answers?
Tell them to check a history book and look up the Soviet Union.
Well, I'd like to know who it is that decides pay anyway! Like once my mom said "That janitor makes more money than us." (she was a secretary at the time) And I said, "Yeah, but you get to sit in a nice air-conditioned office all day while he scrubs toilets."
If we all made the same pay....now THAT would be very interesting! No one to Lord it over you. MAYBE. You'd see who really cared, and who didn't, that's for sure.
Well said, I read an interesting hub the other day, about the tactics of a propagandist. Would you be surprised to learn that they often insult the intelligence of their opponent, mock their qualifications, call them Anti... when they do not conform. And, well, basically, try anything they can to shut them up. Particularly when they have touched on a nerve.
Surprised? We've all had a graduate course in that!!!
Fox "News" and righty-hate-talk radio!!
I forgot to add as an addendum. Of course you wouldn't, just highlighting the obvious for those that think we're too dumb to see.
Maybe we hurt their feelings? Could it be? Some men are used to being cow-towed to....maybe that's why they like Bachmann-Turner-Overdrive?
She says "conform to your husband."
For gods sakes, look what she sleeps with every nite!
And now I'm insulting for fun. My bad....but COME ON!
This is 2011. Have they met this generation???
"conform to your husband" that makes me chuckle. Ahhhhh, hurt feelings, report, report, report. Warning: must not meet this generation, they challenge, they bad, therefore, they are welfare losers that never shower!!!! Off to bed now, 12.55 me knackered. (still chuckling )
I got as far as the snopes.com article -- read down to the bottom to understand the context. Those that got raises also got title changes/new responsibilities.
Total number of staff and total payroll for the White House DECLINED in 2010.
As usual, the devil is in the details.
Gotta go to Beckles the Evil Clown for insight......he "knows allll".....
"You are getting sleeeepy"
Obama Yo Mama Osama Hussein!
Wouldn't have too much of a problem with these salaries for either the CEO's or the government employees if the country wasn't in such a mess, well I figure they'd earned it.
Wouldn't have a problem with CEO's making large salaries to the ones that don't run their companies into the ground and expect taxpayer help. And if you're a CEO running an American based company you should make some attempt to help create jobs in this country. Then I can live with the high priced salaries.

Let's face it "Hilary for President" gets the Republican base buzzing like no other. We all know that the Benghazi Committee's specific purpose is to go after her and rip her competency to shreds.Then there is the big, bogus email fraud sting. I can see that she is a strong person and a...

OK I give up. Armageddon is coming. President makes threats, talks down to Americans, Dems plan has fake cuts and they refuse to look at Repubs offers, Repubs balking at Dems offers saying no raising the taxes. No wonder Bachmann has a migraine. Forget politics, forget which plan you think is...

She wants to stay and there are many members in the Democratic party who support her. The only answer I have is Yes! Yes! Yes! Please stay and run and win the position. We'd love for Nancy to stick around and remind us of her years as Speaker of the House and rehash everything she...

Obama's Presidency is nearing it's end. What is his legacy, in your view?All opinions are welcome. I am interested to hear how different people view Barak Obama, as Commander-In-Chief.

I'm aware that this is an election year. I know that everyone is entitled to their opinions. But over the last year and a half, I've noticed some blatant forms of disrespect being directed at President Obama. Why? Is it because he is black? From highway billboards to other political figures...
