ArkAngel: ginandbacon: colinspooky: Doesn't all that money come out of the same pot anyway? Presidential salary, secret service, White House staff, military, roads, all that stuff will come out of the taxpayer pot. So I am assuming the subby's low level irritating is whether this group of staff paid for their lunch with their wages or expenses?Does the President have a per diem? I'm honestly not sure. Everyone else does but is he a regular GS level employee? I have no idea how to figure that out. If he isn't, then he pays for meals out of pocket. His detail can expense anything as long as they don't go over. It varies by region and time of year but it would be hard to go over in most places. It's a pretty generous per diem.He has an expense account. I believe it is $50,000.

cameroncrazy1984: Somacandra: I would imagine that they get a per diem or expense account while on business travel, like most professionals.They do get a per diem, but if she were to research that, she wouldn't be outraged then would she?
xanadian: It's Obama. We're supposed to be outraged 24/7. Even if he were to personally cure cancer.[encrypted-tbn1.gstatic.com image 254x198]
