  • Huge waste. If they need to pay someone to run a page, why not pay them minumum wage? It's not like it's rocket science!

  • There is a lot of waste. My sil has an 85k job working for the Administration just surfing websites like Cafemom. She is supposed to "set the record straight" when it comes to our current President. She used to work for Walmart doing the same job but the Gov pays better. I think her and the 100s of others like her should be cut. Our President and our Congress are irresponsible if I ran my finances like they run the Gov I would be in the poor house.

  • adnilm~~~~On the news today was a piece on the government cutting spending but they hired 1 person at $115,000 a year to run a Facebook page.

    minnesotanice~~~~no its not a riddle.........Just a piece that I found to be a little bit confusing since we are suppose to be slashing the budget yet hire someone at that EXTREME amount to surf Facebook all day.
