Dino Rossi’s Republican campaign for Senate has jumped all over Washington State’s stimulus experience:

Bellevue, WA – Washington State received over $6 billion in stimulus funds. Of that, $5,945,163,990 has been spent. According to recovery.wa.gov, the Washington State government site charged with keeping track of stimulus money spent throughout Washington State and the jobs saved or created from those funds, 14,495 jobs have been saved or created at an average cost of $410,152.74 per job.

As president, Barack Obama receives an annual salary of $400,000.

The One's salary is $400K per year, but it is tax exempt, so it really comes out to quite a bit more. When you also add the fact that his wife can spend more than that on a single vacation (she averages 1.5 vacations per month since March), he's making an easy 7 figures.
