Queen Michelle Obama Has 26 Taxpayer-Funded Assistants

If you pay taxes then you are paying for Michelle Obama’s servants, er, “assistants”.

Forget the fact that we are in the midst of the worst economy since the Great Depression. Forget that there is record national debt, and ignore the high unemployment and suffering amongst the common people. Because Michelle Obama needs 26 assistants at our expense–a bill that works out to more than $1.7 million dollars per year!

Remember, “First Lady” is not a political office–she is not entitled to any assistants. In fact, First Ladies of the past had to pay their assistants out of their own pockets! (I am not referring to Laura Bush here–she had a taxpayer-funded staff as well. But hers only cost us a “mere” $1+ million of wasted money per year.)

Apparently all of the new jobs from the economic stimulus packages were created inside of the White House.

Ron Paul notes that only 5 printed copies of the bill were available to read, some of it handwritten. These copies were only made available after 12:30 AM last night, hardly enough time to even skim the surface of what was contained within the 1,071 pages. “The bankruptcy of the country is at our doorstep and the destruction of the dollar is the thing that will finally wake us up.”—Paul

GOP leader Boehner says the ‘stimulus’ bill is 1,071 pages, making it impossible for anyone to read it before the vote.

UPDATE 2.15.09:
After Rushing to pass the “stimulus” bill before anyone had a chance to read it, Obama “promptly took off for a three-day holiday getaway” and won’t sign the bill until he returns. What was the rush for (besides ensuring that no one could read the bill)? more…

Ron Paul: The Road to Nationalization and What About the BIG Bailout???

The $15 billion auto industry bailout really is a petty distraction compared to the $8+ trillion spent so far on the bank bailout scams.

Ron Paul speaking in the House of Representatives on 12/10/2008:

Ron Paul’s 2nd Speech from 12/10/2008:

Ron Paul: Don’t Bail Out the Auto Industry

Ron Paul gets it right again:

Ron Paul: With or Without Bailout There Could Be a Depression

The revised bailout has a few good things in it, along with more bad things — and it’s loaded with “pork”.  When it’s all said and done and the bailout is passed, there will still be a recession and maybe a depression.
