It's one of those awkward questions that everyone really wants to know but few want to ask: what's your salary?
Well, if you're a White House employee your salary is public record. Since 1995 the White House has been required to supply Congress with the title and salary of every White House office employee. The list shows the president's top advisors including –Valerie Jarrett, Jack Lew, David Plouffe, Tom Donilon, John Brennan, Jay Carney, Nancy-Ann DeParle, Denis McDonough and Kathryn Ruemmler among others– all top out at $172,200. (here's the complete list)
After a landmark day for President Obama with the Supreme Court upholding the healthcare law, today he heads to Colorado Springs to survey the damage from the wildfires there. The Waldo Canyon fire was only 15% contained as of Thursday so we'll see if they gain any ground on the fire today. President Obama will meet with fire officials and local government officials and take a tour of the damage. He's also expected to make a statement to the press at some point this afternoon. He's on the ground for about three hours this afternoon before returning home this evening.
