Just wondering if the Tea Party is going to protest what might be the WORST example of overspending and government waste. The taxpayers of the State of Alabama are paying U of Alabama head football coach Nick Saban $4 million a year. Yep. Highest paid employee of the state of Alabama. South Carolina? USC's Steve Spurrier and Clemson's Dabo Swinney.....the 2 highest paid employees of the SC state govt. Same for the states of Louisiana, Florida, Georgia. All pay their college football coach the highest salary of any govt employee. Tea Partiers.......are you going to protest this? Likely not. Most of you have these team's bumper stickers on your cars, and cheer for them on Saturdays (although you likely didn't attend the school itself). Fucking hypocrites. You'll demand less pay/benefits for cops, firemen, teachers..........but then cheer on the hiring of a football coach for multi-million $$$'s of tax payers money. The taxpayers of Alabama had to give head coach Nick Saban a multi-year, $4 million contract. And the Alabama Tea Party, I'm sure, didn't cheer once.
