As Billy Ray Valentine once said: “We are paying some of our employees an awful lot of money.”
Twenty-eight-year-old speechwriter Jon Favreau, for example, rakes in the top salary, $172,000: just as much as Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, Senior Advisor’s David Axelrod and Valerie Jarrett and National Security Advisor Gen. Jim Jones.
The President’s ever-present “body man” Reggie Love scores a paycheck of $102,000. Social Secretary Desiree Rogers makes $113,000.
The boy-wonder speech writer makes the same amount as the National Security Advisor. What’s up with that?
