Reality?

Average CEO's Salary $9-$11 million

President's Salary $400,000

Senator's Salary $174,000

Average Bank President's Salary $90,000-$110,000

Average Yearly Gross for George Clooney $60 Million

Peyton Manning's Yearly Contract Salary $18 Million

From www.census.gov " Real median household income in the United States in 2010 was $49,445, a 2.3 percent decline from the 2009 median.

The nation's official poverty rate in 2010 was 15.1 percent, up from 14.3 percent in 2009 ─ the third consecutive annual increase in the poverty rate. There were 46.2 million people in poverty in 2010, up from 43.6 million in 2009 ─ the fourth consecutive annual increase and the largest number in the 52 years for which poverty estimates have been published."

This guy needs a serious reality check. http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/ticket/rep-john-fleming-field-criticism-over-600k-income-153305241.html. Many of us are living well below that $49,445 average income, especially us in 1 income families.

I'm so glad my hope lies in Jesus and not in the government.

“Be glad, people of Zion, rejoice in the LORD your God, for he has given you the autumn rains because he is faithful. He sends you abundant showers, both autumn and spring rains, as before.” Joel 2:23 NIV
