An article by Mark Steyn points out that Robert Keith Gray in Presidential Perks Gone Royal concludes that the Presidency cost Americans $1.4 billion last year. That same year, the British Royal Family cost the UK $57 million. William and Kate have flown commercial, refusing to fly first class instead of business class, while the White House has over 200 employees being paid salaries over $100,00 per year. And one of those is the Presidential dog walker. For $100,000 a year, I’d walk the dog!
You really should read the whole article. And remember, according to this same White House, we don’t have a spending problem, only a tax problem.
