Why does caring for Barack Obama’s family cost taxpayers 24 times as much as caring for the British royal family?
The Daily Caller reports:
Taxpayers spent $1.4 billion dollars on everything from staffing, housing, flying and entertaining President Obama and his family last year, according to the author of a new book on taxpayer-funded presidential perks. In comparison, British taxpayers spent just $57.8 million on the royal family.
That is an absolute disgrace.
The article continues:
Obama has 469 senior staffers and 226 are paid more than $100,000 a year
A president who believed in constitutionally limited government would never do that.
The article also states:
The president has a full-time movie projectionist in the White House theater: Projectionists sleep at the White House and are there 24 hours a day in case anyone needs to see a movie.
Apparently, the person who is trusted to keep their finger on the button that activates the nuclear bombs is too incompetent to operate a DVD player.
The article also says that taxpayers spend $102,000 per year on a “dog handler” for Obama’s dog. The President already receives a personal salary of $400,000 a year – why can’t he spend his own money on a “dog handler”?
