Let's Cut Some Spending: Biden's staff biggest in history


Public Domain


Remember the absolutely critical Omnibus spending bill Congress muscled through at the end of last year? It was 4,000 pages that no one read and cost taxpayers $1.7 trillion.

In our Let's Cut Some Spending series, ForAmerica will chronicle parts of the 2021 and 2022 spending bills from a variety of sources that you probably don't know about - programs, grants and spending of all kinds that should have never happened in the first place and many that are still happening.

Today’s offering: Biden's staff the biggest in history - Jill's almost twice the size of Melania's!

The Washington Examiner reports:

A White House payroll and staffing review by the group OpenTheBooks found that the White House staff under Biden is the biggest and most expensive in history.
“During President Joe Biden’s first three years, he spent $158.8 million on the largest White House payroll in American history, based on headcount. White House staff for FY2023 collectively cost $52,775,234,” said the report from OpenTheBooks CEO Adam Andrzejewski.
“No White House ever employed 500 staffers until Biden became president. The Biden White House employed 560 in FY2021 and 474 in FY2022. In 2023, the headcount increased by 50, to 524,” he added.
Those are considerably higher than the staffs of former Presidents Donald Trump and Barack Obama. Trump, at this point of his presidency, had 108 less and Obama 70 fewer.
Not only did Trump operate with fewer aides, but so did former first lady Melania Trump. She averaged between five to 12 aides.

When the president doesn't know who he is or where he is half the time...we guess it takes a pretty big staff to manage him!


As if this administration hasn't cost Americans enough already, now we learn this.
