Highest-paid federal employees out-earned Obama

The 1,000 highest paid federal employees in 2014 were mostly Veterans Health Administration doctors, two of which have higher salaries than President Barack Obama, according to federal data.

Among the highest paid were 986 VA doctors, 13 doctors with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and one individual with the Commission to Eliminate Child Abuse and Neglect Fatalities who job was listed as "miscellaneous administration."

The two top paid employees were Dr. Thomas A. Burdon, a thoracic surgeon with the VA Palo Alto Health Care System in California, who made $402,462; and Dr. Thomas V. Cacciarelli, a surgeon at VA Pittsburgh Healthcare System, who made $401,589.

President Obama makes $400,000 - not including other benefits.

$400,000 is only a small piece of his salary.
He gets millions a year in perks.
