Obama, Biden, Kagan: Where Their Pocket Money Comes From
FlaglerLive | May 18, 2010
A few tidbits from President Barack Obama’s financial disclosure form: royalties from his book, Dreams of My Father, are bringing in more than $1 million (but less than $5 million). He has investments in Treasury bonds, retirement and college savings accounts worth between $2.2 million and $7.5 million. And he got that $1.4 million for winning the Nobel peace prize, but that went to charity.
Obama’s current salary: a whopping $400,000. (Average pay and benefits for CEOs in the country’s top 500 companies: $9.25 million.) Annual pay and benefits for Tony Hayward, BP’s top executive: $3.14 million.
Look for yourself: here are the full financial disclosure forms for the president, the vice president and, bonus, the president’s Supreme Court nominee.
