The Speaker of the House of the United States Senate makes $223,500 (2011 salary). Congressional pay information is now readily available thanks to the Freedom of Information Act.
John Boehner, as the elected leader of the majority republican party, is the speaker of the house in 2011. His website can be found here, at speaker.gov
Did you know that the speaker of the house is actually 3rd in line to the presidency? If something terrible should happen to both the president and vice president, than the speaker takes over.
Is Boehner underpaid? Overpaid? What do you think?
