$400,000 a year and it is not for life, it is only while being President. The salary use to be $200,000 a year but in 1999 Bill Clinton signed the congressional bill that raised it to $400,000 a year but it could not be applied to Clinton himself (so Bush was 1st President to fall under the $400,000 a year salary).


1st source but I think this is right

it's an issue i would discuss quite intensely [and i think our debate would rage some time, piddock]
but it is so totally offpoint here...
we have enough to rage about already in the OP.

my cynical mind can't help wondering if this is possibly something they are doing on purpose...
i mean with all these protests against the money and corruption in politics... can they somehow have missed them?
or thought that they were exempt?
it's possible they can't even see us ants from up there on the hill
but if that's the case it's even worse.

this is all going to come crashing.


But immigration in general and illigal immigration in particular is a political issue.

Your title made me think of this,

Tyrants, dictators and kings always award themselves the greatest rewards, even while the serfs suffer in their stead.
She must be all of the above, coz not one person in this country actually voted for her...
Isn't that what those three do?

In a way you're making a very valid point. We're all expected to tighten our belts and yet we're effectively being told in true "French Revolution" style by our (unelected) leader to .... "eat cake". Too bad the guillotine can't be put to use here in Australia as we certainly have the perfect person to try it out on

Has anyone noticed how she has set herself up with yes men and other lackys? Also how she gave the Gg job to a female ( no I'm not having a go at females) and has now given that womens son in law a job.

Did you know that the Gg is the only one who can sack her?

If she fails to have support from the houses they can petiton the Gg to sack her but it's that much harder if the Gg is on her side.

Did you know that now if the Gg was to sack Gillard that the Gg's son in law would now also lose his job?

Just an update the payrise justification was because they had to be more available on facebook twitter and other social media.

yeah, and so are the education system, housing, healthcare.... what's your point?
i thought this was a thread about our Prime Minister's payrise

if you want to talk immigrants, start an immigrants thread and we'll talk it out there, but let's not obfuscate everything else. let's not forget relevance.

It's all part of the issues surrounding the PM and her party. You arrogant self imposed MOD you. How about if you don't like people talking about all the issues surounding Gillard you find another thread and leave the regulating up to the MODS chum.
