Government millionaires

The CEO of the Tennessee Valley Authority is paid $8 million per year with tax payer money (Spokesman-Review, 08/04).

President Trump fired Skip Thompson, the CEO and says the next guy on the job should be paid $500,000.

Is it only Thompson that gets to live lavishly on our tax dollars or are all government heads paid in the millions?

Shocking isn’t the word for it. No wonder we are trillions of dollars in debt and have to borrow each month to make ends meet.
