Literally nobody is saying that, and it's frankly a stupid line of argument. No more than someone might argue that a restaurant busboy in the private sector might make $19,000, but if he became Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff he could make $200,000, SO ThEReFORe TEH GOveRNMUnT PAYZ MOOOORE.

Look at Lois Lerner who is retired with a 200,000 dollars a year pension.
