The TrueSoldier Rants

The Thoughts of a Conservative mind.

And The Hypocrisy Grows Larger

I just saw this on Foxnews.com.  Appearantly the Postmaster General received a huge raise and a bonus last year even though the postal service is faltering.

Postmaster General John Potter’s base salary climbed to $265,000 last year from $186,000 in 2007 and he received a performance bonus of $135,000, all approved by Congress.

And this from a Congress who chided failing companies for paying bonuses to their CEO’s.

  1. Hum, so that means that he is now paid as much as the President? I guess that performance is not the criteria for salary or bonuses. The USPS will have to sell 8,250,000 1st class stamps after the rate increase to pay for this “bonus”.
