After years of talking about job creation, House Speaker John Boehner finally delivered on his promise. By announcing his resignation from Congress, effective the end of October, Boehner created a job opening the likes of which is rarely seen. In fact, the job has been described as one of the most powerful, sought-after jobs in the nation.
But here’s the thing. No one seems to want the job!
Granted the job of House Speaker is a difficult one. Some have likened it to herding cats … feral cats. But the salary and benefits are sweet. And here’s the best part, anyone can apply for the job! You do not have to be an elected member of Congress to be Speaker.
Here is a list of the many benefits of the job:
- Salary, $223,000
- Free airport parking
- Free onsite gym
- Up to 239 days off
- Great retirement benefits
- $1.2 million allowance package
- No heavy lifting
There is one type of prior experience that, although not required, may be helpful … babysitting. You will have to have the skills and patience to deal with a group of irrational, childish men who are prone to temper tantrums.
Oops, almost forgot… if anything were to happen to the President and Vice President, you would take over as the leader of the free world!
If you think you’d like to apply, send your resume to:
The Honorable John A. Boehner United States House of Representatives 1011 Longworth House Office Building Washington, D.C. 20515-3508
Good Luck! Really good luck.
