More smoke and mirrors with Obama’s sequester scheme
Yesterday I found out Obama’s politics of sequester was going to cut the Navy Blue Angels and Air Force Thunderbirds from performing this year.
Today, I find real damage being done to the little people he claims to champion: the White House is going to furlough the cooks:
Washington – Even White House chefs could be feeling the pain of government budget cuts.
Assistant chef Sam Kass, who cooks dinner for President Obama several nights a week, said Tuesday that he will be furloughed as part of across-the-board budget cuts that went into effect in March. Kass, who is the president’s senior nutrition policy adviser, made the comments in an interview with food reporters at the White House.
The White House has said 480 workers on the budget staff may have to take days without pay but hasn’t said whether notices have gone out to other Obama aides.
