Do you think Obama's comments about outgoing White House Spokesman, Robert Gibbs, and his MODEST salary of $172,000 is appropriate given that the AVERAGE household income hovers around $55,000?!
I guess I find it ironic that Obama sees couples earning $250,000 per year as "rich," yet Gibbs' salary is "modest" by comparison.
Side note: Gibbs' wife, attorney Mary Catherine Gibbs is a partner in a law firm. They have one 6 year old son.

In many cases~Military Contractors make nearly twice the amount as the soldier force, doing the same career field...

Among Obama and the fat cats on the hill, 172,000 IS a paltry sum- I'm sure his wife makes more working as an attorney. Once you accept that those in the inner circle consider themselves above the rest of us, you totally get BOs comment. They are in control- similar to many third world countries, they think that they SHOULD be able to decide just how much money stays within the working class....for our class, 250,000 is rich, according to the rulers....not to worry, they've decided that the billionaires should have the same tax burden as you..... Never understand why some support legal, congress endorsed, tax loopholes for the mega rich, ruling class. With the fox guarding the hen house, why wonder when the hens go missing?
