How does the fraud in the White House, on a salary of $250,000 annually, who gave up 5% (to be a good guy!) amass $12.2 Million in only 4 years as reported by the New York Times (April 28, 2013)? That does not include the $11.8 million Michele Obama has amassed.
Most at the top worked their way up. On the other hand, there are those who stepped on many others to get to the top, and then made friends wealthy for their support.
Maybe some feel that because of all the supposedly wonderful thing he does, Soetoro/Obama should get a bigger piece of the pie? Maybe he can write an executive order and give himself a raise. After all, he has a pen and a phone.
