Budget crisis or not, it pays to work at the White House. Of the 454 employees who work at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, 141 bring home six-figure salaries, according to the annual report released by the White House. Twenty-one make the top salary of $172,200, reports the National Journal. They include spokesman Jay Carney, speechwriter Jon Favreau, adviser Valerie Jarrett, and chief of staff Bill Daley. President Obama is not included in the document since it only spotlights employees, but he earns $400,000 annually. Check out what everyone else makes here. (Read more White House stories.)
