If so, here are some numbers for you to shove back at her.
Speaker of the House - 223,500/year
Minority and majority leaders in the house and senate - 193,400/year
Rank and file representatives and senators - 174,000/year
Total annual salary, House and Senate - $93,117,100
Five percent of that - $4,655,855
Current national deficit as of noon, 27 March 2010 - $12,695,232,195,046 (estimated)
