All first ladies have large staffs. Hilary had 20, plus 15 interns.
For people complaining about the cost; the monies has been a part of the budget in every administration,
"The staff is salaried by public funds through annual executive branch appropriations approved by Congress."
So to try to first, imply that Michelle Obama is doing something out of the ordinary, is wrong, and secondly, unless you can find me somewhere that
states she's spending out of budget, then, it's all business as usual.
If you don't understand that the first lady has a job, one that takes people to accomplish, or if you simply don't want the government to have this
long established role, then do something about it and write your congressman.
But don't try and play the 'omg, the obamas are stealing our monies' card.
