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.

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

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.
