Ann Coulter discusses the glaring omission of party affiliation of the members of the Bell, Ca city council. You know, the LA suburb that boasted the highest paid public employee IN THE ENTIRE US! (That includes the Federal Government too!)
Seriously, who couldn’t use a $787 THOUSAND DOLLAR salary ($1.5million considering benefits!), and that included, get this, TWENTY EIGHT WEEKS of vacation/sick time! You can’t make this up!
If you do the math, with 28 weeks vacation/sick time, that leaves 24 weeks of work. Even figuring that he works every day, including Sundays (highly unlikely), that’s 168 days of work a year, and that’s approximately $9000 A DAY. A DAY! Take out the weekends and it figures even higher, at $12,500/day! In a city where the per capita average income is less than $25k/year, he surpassed that in 2 to 3 days.
Wouldn’t you like to be able to make $12,500 a DAY? DO you think that is sustainable on the backs of the taxpayers? If so, would you be interested in this bridge I have for sale?
One question that comes to mind is how they were able to support such massive salaries in a city where the average income is $25k without the “comp” consuming the entire city budget? Do they have a large population and astoundingly high taxes? Did they just not care?
What’s your take?
