They should not be fired, but the government should be cutting on their spending on lavish lifestyle just like they want to cut on everything else.

Because that is what is call, lavish.

26 salaries to 26 American citizens who will spend their money in America (mostly).

Why is this a problem?
you know why. The slaves shouldn't be telling white massa what to do.

I don't get it.
Are these people supposed to work for free?
And all those salaries fall in the middle class.

This is not an issue.

No it's part of the job. Diplomatic gatherings hosting dignitaries from other countries is all part of running the country but I don't expect anyone here to grasp this concept since they have a problem paying a support staff to get these things done. Hey guess what they get a redecorating budget too. The kids get to pick how they want their rooms to look. Nit picking nonsense.

Well I was recently in threads about tax evasion and how something like $30 Trillion is hidden by the super rich in offshore accounts.

Also something like the richest 100 people on the planet own half of the worlds wealth.

When we've sorted all of that out, when we have dealt with the abuse and tax evasion and illegal practices of corporations, then maybe we should worry about getting a worse chef for Barry.... or getting a cheaper hairdresser for Michelle.

Nobody mentioned this kind of stuff for any other president, it wasn't an issue.
All of a sudeen, it's Evil Obama and his wasteful ways.
It's pathetic and transparent.


I think it IS an issue and the world is completely unequal and unfair and people need to rise up and do something, but there are far, far worse offenders that the POTUS

Though it seems First Ladies have had need of assistance since the beginning. See excerpt from Wikipedia




Martha Washington was upset when her lady's maid Oney Judge, a "dower" slave, escaped in 1796 from the Philadelphia household during Washington's second term. According to interviews with Judge in the 1840s, the First Lady had promised the young woman as a wedding gift to her granddaughter Elizabeth Parke Custis in Virginia and Judge feared she would never gain freedom.[16] She hid with free black friends in the city, who helped arrange her travel by ship to Portsmouth, New Hampshire. There she married and had three children. Patricia Brady, in her 2005 biography of Martha Washington, writes: "Martha felt a responsibility for the unsophisticated girl under her care, especially since her mother and sister were expecting to see her back at Mount Vernon. What she could never understand was that [Oney had...] a simple desire to be free. Ona, as she preferred to call herself, wanted to live where she pleased, do what work she pleased, and learn to read and write [...] Ona Judge professed a great regard for Martha and the way she had been treated, but she couldn't face a future as a slave for herself and her children."[17] Washington's slave Hercules, who had worked as his chief cook at the President's House (Philadelphia) before being returned to Mount Vernon in 1796, escaped from there on February 22, 1797.[18] He was known to have traveled to Philadelphia and by December 1801 was living in New York City.[19][20] His six-year-old daughter, still enslaved at Mount Vernon, told a visitor that she was glad her father was free.[21] By 1799 the number of Martha Washington's "dower" slaves had grown to 153; George Washington owned 124 people, and at least a dozen Washington-owned slaves intermarried. Washington's will[22] stipulated that his own slaves were to be set free after his wife's death so that intermarried families would not be broken up.


Certainly, we can't expect not to pay those who assist. We should be thankful they no longer need over a hundred on their staff!

Meanwhile, those who seek welfare to prevent their families starving to death are told they are scroungers and a burden to the tax payer!

And people wonder why we use the word "sheeple".
who says this? You? I don't say that. I say let's make sure no one goes hungry or lives on the street .

No one asked me to sacrifice anything. Did I just not get the letter or what. What did they ask you to give up? Can you post a photo of that letter requesting your sacrifice?

Not to the minimum wage earners on ATS. This is a fortune to them that's why they are up in arms. They look at these like they are high salaries.

We have many threads on that issue, is a shame , but corruption runs deep within our government and their benefactors.


Also something like the richest 100 people on the planet own half of the worlds wealth.


That is true, is call the NWO and taking away from the wealth of nations is their agenda, at least most of them.


When we've sorted all of that out, when we have dealt with the abuse and tax evasion and illegal practices of corporations, then maybe we should worry about getting a worse chef for Barry.... or getting a cheaper hairdresser for Michelle.


Sadly that is not going to happen, America is run by a corporate dictatorship and they get to pay for the laws and politicians in the nation.

And as for Michelle well when millions in America has lost their jobs in Obama's economy they should live by example when sacrifices are forced into the tax payers.



Nobody mentioned this kind of stuff for any other president, it wasn't an issue.

Yes we have, I have been here for 10 years and let me tell you, we have thousands of threads on The Bush administration waste and abuse.


I think it IS an issue and the world is completely unequal and unfair and people need to rise up and do something, but there are far, far worse offenders that the POTUS


Yes the world is unfair, but when our top leader wife surround herself with a lavish lifestyle when millions lose their jobs and should be having cuts in welfare so the government can save money to have the First lady surrounding herself with 20 servants it makes not darn sense.

So naïve.... see whenever you pay taxes out of your hard earned dollars for waste and abuse, that is a sacrifice that you as a hard worker and tax payer have to do.

Now, if you live or are on welfare then you have nothing to worry about. Right?

Some of them aren't bad at all! In fact, $36,000 a year for working for the first lady? I make more than that at the NHS... Which is also tax money

how much mail does she get then?.. I mean if she needs to have assistants to just open and read her mail it must be a lot.

I mean its not like she does any press-conferences, public appearences, or other PR -type-stuff, right?

oh wait

Those are not 'lavish' expenditures. While I hate her just as much as the next tax payer, these salaries don't speak the volumes that I think the OP would like them to. $100,000 is a comfortable living, with 40% of it going to state and federal taxes, the person in question really only nets $60k, or $5k/mo. That's not a lot.

Fast forward to today. Michelle is not only "proud" of America, but now, thanks to her husband, the United States of America is "the greatest country on Earth", she said during her speech at the convention tonight.

Meanwhile, every speaker at the DNC convention is saying how bad America is in jobs, race relations, poor pay, etc... After 8 years of the Barack Obama presidency only his wife Michelle feels that things are better than they've ever been.
