Mr. President, only 52% of the American public think you're doing a good job so you earn 52% of your $33,333 monthly salary. (btw, did you know the U.S. President's salary has doubled from $200K to $400K since the year 2000?) Yep, that means the Obama's would have to squeak by on $17,333 gross this month. Michelle may even have to start moonlighting.
Which brings me to the beauty of this method. We all know there is a huge political divide in our country, or at least that's what the talking heads want us to believe. So if the politicians are going to tow their respective hardcore party lines, they can expect about 50% of their normal salary, but if they want to find solutions that work for the American public as a whole, then cha ching it's payday baby!!
