Bloomberg says, 'The President Doesn’t Get Paid That Much’

New York's Mayor Bloomberg tries to defend Obama's date night in New York. He called Obamas's visit ‘Affordable’ and said, ‘The President Doesn’t Get Paid That Much’. This visit cost the US taxpayers over $70,000. President Obama gets $400,000 per year, including a $50,000 expense allowance. We should all be that underpaid. Not long ago, Obama said we all needed to sacrifice for the greater good. Apparently, some have to sacrifice more than others.

From the video:
“I can’t think of anything that is a better as an advertisement for our tourism industry, for Broadway, for our restaurants, for saying this is a safe city, and an affordable city. The president doesn’t get paid that much. He’s on a budget too.”
