How much does Dana Perino make?

Today, as the new minimum wage goes into effect, you may wonder how much salary Dana "uh, 'Bay of Pigs,' you say?" Perino pulls down each year. You know, taxpayer money? Well good news --now you can find out! The White House has just released it's staff list, including salaries.

Dana Perino makes $172,000 per year.

Yeah. I know.

Another fun fact on the list is that the First Lady's speech writer makes more than the President's speech writer. It kind of explains a lot, actually.

Also, why are there two people with the title, "Director Response Policy"?

And the guy with this title must be very busy: "Special Assistant to the President for Homeland Security and Senior Director for Bio Defense Policy."

But no busier than this guy: "Presidential Support Specialist."

Read it for yourself here.

sure are a lot of greenbacks going through the white house. how about allison george getting 130,694 to be ethics advisor. i don't think they are doing a very good job for that kind of money!

they left off the really big one, the "thumbing your nose at the american public" advisor must be making a mint!

I noticed several people labeled as "ethics advisors" Talk about getting paid to do nothing.

Nan, they should be forced to return their salaries, don't you think? Isn't there some level of fraud here?!
