Top 20 White House Staff Averaged 50% Salary Increases for 2010-11

Once again, the Gawker.com has shown, if you work for the man who talked about hope and change, you can have a lot of hope you’ll get a lot of change: 146 of President Barack Obama’s 270 staff members received an average raise of eight percent for the 2010-11 year.

Gawker correctly observes that Americans suffer while the Obama class of 2012 rakes in the money, every cent of it taken from those suffering American taxpayers. Obama plays golf; his leftist myrmidons get rich. Americans pay for it.

But more disconcerting than the average eight-percent raise during a time when some Americans can’t get raises is this little fact: The top 20 White House employees received increases, on average, of nearly 50 percent. Some nearly doubled their salaries.
