IT IS GOOD TO HAVE MONEY AND THE THINGS MONEY CAN BUY,

THERE IS NO MORE MONEY TO WASTE - M. W. Harrison

The government of the United States of America is a Republic, not an Oligarchy.  An oligarchy is a form of government with power in the hand of a few.  Obama acts as if he is an oligarch!  The American President is an elected official whose pay is determined by the American Congress.  His annual salary is $400,000 along with a $50,000 expense account, a $100,000 nontaxable travel expense and $19,000 for entertainment.

 When the House of Representatives starts to "twist Obama's tail" for driving the country into debt, Obama reacts like a spoiled child trying to hurt everyone.  He stopped paying for veterans college expense, although he continued to pay for the college expenses of illegal aliens.  He stopped White House tours for school children.

The President's recent game of golf in Florida with Tiger Woods would more than off set the cost of the 341 capitol workers he furloughed in his tantrum.

The Floridan Golf Course initiation fee of $50,000, annual fee of $15,000 and the $3,000 fee for an hour with a swing coach pales compared to the total costs.

The cost of the 82 overtime deputies used to provide security coming and going for the President was $58,452 and the 30 overtime deputies providing course security costs an additional $17,452.   Throw in the costs of Air Force One, the Hotel fees and the costs of a day of golf, at tax payers expense, came to $989,207--roughly speaking a million dollars for a round of golf.


MONEY IS NOTHING MORE THAN ARROGANCE ON PAPER
Hunter Brinkmeir

I don't know if Michelle Obama has found anything of which to be proud of in our country, she has said she had never been proud of it, but she sure is using up the taxpayer's dollars.

She looks as if she is enjoying herself on this Colorado ski slope. At taxpayer expense she took her daughters, Sasha and Malia, and a "few" of the girl's friends, for a great winter outing.

This trip cost the American taxpayer $83,182.99.
Have you had a great winter outing lately?

MONEY WILL BUY A PRETTY GOOD DOG,
BUT IT WON'T MAKE THE DOG WAG IT'S TAIL

We did not hire a first lady, she came with her husband, at his expense.

Glen Beck, quoting a book, said that the first lady had 43 servants.  She admits to having 26.  Beck's information included part time help and employers of her servants.


CONSIDER THE ADMITTED SERVANT COSTS FOR A NON-ELECTED INDIVIDUAL

Susan Sher, Chief of Staff, $172,200
Jocelyn Frye, Policy and Project Director, $140,000
Desiree G. Rogers, Social Secretary, $113,000
Camille Y. Johnston, Communications Dir, $102,000
Melissa E. Winter, Deputy Chief of Staff, $102,000

YOU GET THE IDEA, 26 TOTAL, TAXPAYER COSTS $1,600,700

READERS ACROSS THE USA EXPRESS OUTRAGE AT THE UNPRECEDENTED
NUMBER OF SERVANTS IN THE MIDST OF THE GREAT RECESSION

Michelle Bachmann is currently taking a lot of heat because she "dared" to question the tax payer's money being spent by the White House.  In particular, she is ridiculed for mentioning that the taxpayers are paying to walk the family's dog. It was pointed out that a gardener walks the dog.  So what, it's their dog and the taxpayers money.  Let them walk their own dog.

WHAT DO I THINK?

The Republican led House of Congress pays the bills.  I think they should remind the President of the country's obligation for salary and expenses, and pay only that.  It would take a lot of guts, huh?  If he had to pay a million dollars of his own money to play a game of golf, who knows, he might spend a bit more time  working on the nation's problems?  I am of the opinion that the American public would cheer Congress once they understood how their tax dollars are being wasted.


IS MICHELLE OBAMA MORE IMPORTANT THAT THESE FIRST LADIES?

Bess Truman and Mamie Eisenhower shelled out for their personal secretaries from their own pocketbook.  Jacqueline Kennedy's office was headed by one person who supervised nine full and part time workers, including the White House cooks and chambermaids.

OBAMA HAS FIVE CHEFS ON AIR FORCE ONE



NOW YOU KNOW!

WHAT YA'GONNA DO ABOUT IT?




GOD BLESS YOU AND YOUR'S

GOD BLESS THE USA
