    . . .of the pay someone in the same job in the private sector received?  I have. How old were you when you household reached average earnings for their locality?  I did it at age 45, with the help of my wife, who out made me. And I had been in Federal Service 25 years. (oh, I have been to college and grad school) When you combine the extra contribution with all of the rest of President Obama's enhancements, you should be able to understand the angst going on here.
