The sequester will not affect Michelle Obama’s birthday bash
Barack Obama promised immediate painful results due to the sequester as different agencies have to decide how to deal with a decrease in the increase of future spending.
He said children would go hungry and wouldn’t he able to get immunizations, he claimed teachers would be laid off, national security would suffer, illegal aliens would be let go, firefighters and policemen would lose their jobs, and the list went on and on…..
We are now learning about one scheduled event which will go on as planned and will not be sacrificed as a result of the sequester–Michelle Obama’s 50th birthday bash, complete with performances by Adele and Beyonce.
It may be true that Adele and Beyonce will not be charging for their performances but wouldn’t you like to know how much the dinners, staff, and security are going to cost for this event?
When (ahem) “spending cuts” are ordered everyone has to prioritize where the existing money is going to be spent so as to cause the least amount of pain and here we have a perfect example of where the president and the First Lady’s priorities truly lie. While we are being asked to sacrifice for the greater good life goes on as planned for the ruling class elites.
