Brother, can you spare a dime?
Clearly, the Bush economic plan isn't working for ordinary folk:
Nicholas E. Calio, the White House liaison to Congress, announced today that he was leaving his $145,000-a-year position, for a job he did not disclose.

Whatever the new post, it is certain to come with a higher salary than his current government pay. Mr. Calio, who has a daughter in college, a son on the way to college, another daughter in private school and a wife who does not work outside the home, said he needed to make more money.

"I can't pay my bills," he said. "It comes down to the two F's: family and finances."
What's this world coming to when a man can't make even $150,000 a year in government? How can he expect to raise a family on that kind of money?
