The other day I read an article on-line from the Chicago Tribune that made my blood boil. Susan Sher, who has been Michelle Obama’s Chief of Staff since January 19, 2009 and additionally serves as a White House lawyer and Assistant to the President, worked at the University of Chicago Medical Center prior to working in the White House. During the first three weeks of 2009, Sher’s compensation from the medical center was an astounding $511,000 ($49,000 for unused holiday and vacation pay, $149,000 in salary and 2008 bonus pay, and $313,000 from the payout of an executive retirement plan).

If you want to read the entire article, here is the link:,0,2558349,print.story

No wonder people like you and me begin to question just how much gall institutions such as the University of Chicago Medical Center have when they toss dollars around as if they were nickels. Don’t you also find it interesting that institutions such as this one are also playing footsie with politicians, who claim they are for the little guy, and want income redistribution, but simultaneously take big dollars behind the scenes? No wonder Health Care costs are off the charts and increasing daily.

Michelle Obama once fed at this same trough, making over $300,000 per year for a part time job at the medical center. Now we find her Chief of Staff has stuffed her pockets at the UCMC, and moved on to serve (or do I mean feed) at the White House. BIRDS OF A FEATHER FLOCK TOGETHER.

Are you buying this sham?
