Obamas Paying for White House Renovations Personally


nymag.com

At a time when people are having trouble holding on to their houses, Barack and Michelle Obama have sensibly decided not to use taxpayers’ money to renovate theirs.

They “are not using public funds or accepting donations of goods for redecorating their private quarters,” says Camille Johnston, director of communications for the First Lady. Nor is the couple, who reported $4.2 million in household income in 2007 tax returns, using money from the White House Historical Association, a privately funded foundation that paid for a $74,000 set of china shortly before Laura Bush left town.

I think this is quite a generous thing to do ... there is some room for a conspiracy here, but who know's ... i didn't even know about the whole laura bush thing ... maybe they could be putting their money towards other things? that's a really selfish statement ... but it's nice to know that they're not wasting the taxpayer's money, which is being stretched very thin ... this is a publicly good thing for them to do, when the rest of the attention is on the bailout's and what not, don't get me wrong i think they are quite important and wrong imo, but i think this was a smart thing for them to do ... what are your thoughts?
