You also have to add in equivalent for pension. I don't get a pension in the private sector, have to save for a nest egg that will kick off cash in retirement. That it worth a ton of money!

Fraud, extortion & treason.

Not even worth a fraction of their pay. That's why unions suck, right along side of Liberals.

Who the fuck does the maths at fox? If its 1mil/min, and there are 60*24=1440 minutes in a day, that's 1.44 Billion per day, not 500 million as they say. One of these numbers or both are bullshit.

You want to see waste? Go to Open Books, and look up Long Beach, CA. 90835.

Lobbyist kickbacks range into the millions but , there not mentioning that just "bonus's" . The common person struggles day to day or month to month while our tax dollars pay a government to screw us over a little more each year. Homelessness is growing, poverty is growing , status gap from rich to poor is growing and the only people benefiting are politicians and corporations. It's like the flue shot 10% effective but they don't mention it's loaded with mercury .

Our beloved president does not accept a government.  salary. The democrats keep their hand in American workers pockets.

Leonard Wong · December 31, 2017 at 8:02 am

Are they bloody geniuses or something? What have they achieved? Time to downsize the gov….. prosecute and slap a fine for the corrupt, then fire the ineffective.

Fucking ridiculous. They could feed the homeless population in the US with that type of money

Lenny Kuijpers · December 31, 2017 at 8:02 am

EUROPEAN STYLE??? FAKE NEWS !!!
In the Netherlands, members of gov, aren't allowed to earn more than 120.000 a year….

wayne henager · December 31, 2017 at 8:02 am

These salaries look small compared to the salaries of these folks https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mass_surveillance_industry

Federal employees shouldn't get bonuses, just regular raises like the rest of us get. The COLA and maybe a small increase IF they are doing an above average job.

Ultimagtr650 · December 31, 2017 at 8:02 am

You see exactly the same in the UK. This makes sure the union members vote Democrat, because they give them all your money for simply doing their job…Its a win/win for the Democrats, because everyone is greedy when they are getting someone else`s money for …nothing

Joe Couchmam · December 31, 2017 at 8:02 am

HOW ABOUT THESE PEOPLE PUTTING THE MONEY BACK INTO SOCIAL SECURITY THAT THE PEOPLE PAID INTO ALL THERE LIFE.

Marcus · December 31, 2017 at 8:02 am

Whats really shocking is that it costs the taxpayer 3 million dollars every time Trump goes golfing in Maralgo that they even charge his security golf cart rental is rediculous. So far Trump has golfed over 80 times this year all at his resorts…screwing the taxpayer and promoting his business!!

Mark Wright · December 31, 2017 at 8:02 am

And $1 of that goes to Trump, because thats all he takes as Presidential pay. However he spends a lot more money on travel, secret service escort and airforce one etc. Trump has definitely made some cut backs in the white house. Much less employees. But these numbers need to go down further.
