Since 1995, the White House has been forced to disclose the salaries of its staffers to Congress. This year, in a rare display of actual transparency instead of just talking about transparency before finding it too difficult to actually implement, the Obama administration has released a searchable database of their salaries to the public.

A much larger contingent make $40,000 or less.

If you know anyone who works at the White House, now you know how much they make. Use that information wisely.
