Biden Breaks Awful Records With Administration Staff
Biden disappointed conservatives in more ways than one while in the Oval Office and he has broken a few records in his time in the White House and itâs recently been discovered that his new record-breaking statistic is costing taxpayers big time.
According to a new report cited in theÂ Independent Journal Review, the current president has such bad fiscal policy that he even went so far as to have a White House that has cost Americans more than any other White House in history.
The issue of the White House staff budget was so bad that evenÂ ForbesÂ reported on it, calling it a âbloatedâ White House payroll. They went on to say that âIf the White House payroll is a leading indicator of the presidentâs commitment to expanding government then taxpayers have a reason for concern.â
Thatâs not the Daily Wire, or The Blaze or someone already weighted against a Democrat in the White House, thatâs a publication that is known to pay homage to people who know how to balance a checkbook and manage money, and theyâre saying, ladies and gents, we have a problem.
âProjected four-year costs of Bidenâs White House payroll could top $200 million,â the publication went on to say. âFor comparison, inflation-adjusted, the Trump administration spent $164.3 million (2017-2020) and the Obama administration spent $188.5 million (2009-2012).â
So why is it that the Biden White House is shooting themselves in the foot this way? They must know that their fiscal policy is going to be closely watched, considering their predecessorâs aptitude for slicing and dicing costs both foreign and domestic.
The irresponsibility with money seems to start with the fact that the Biden administration has almost 200 more employees than the Trump administration did (coming in at a whopping 567) and in addition to that burden, the Biden White House either has much more expensive taste or theyâre somehow shopping very poorly. Forbes also reported that the cost of goods and services, the sacrifice of the countryâs energy independence, and surrender of the southern border all seem to have gone up in just the short months since Biden took over.
Why is Bidenâs staff so expensive, you might ask? That was a question answered byÂ The Washington Post last month who stated that they have seen a âpatternâ of nepotism in the Biden White House and theyâre concerned it might be having a long-term impact on the behavior of the staff and its expenditures:
âAt least five children of his top aides have secured coveted jobs in the new administration. They include two sons and a daughter of the White House counselor, the daughter of a deputy White House chief of staff and the daughter of the director of presidential personnel,â The Post noted.
So the question becomes; who is watching out for the American tax dollar? Is it going to come just be that theyâll get away with absolutely everything they can? Will someone step in and put pressure on the White House to make sure theyâre acting responsibly? Why would a White House who is staffing almost 200 people more than the previous one not have at least one of those people crunching numbers to make sure theyâre getting the best price on everything?
The answer to most of those questions is likely âpriorities.â The White House is prioritizing nepotism and pet projects over the value of the American dollar, and the American people will have to decide how much priority to put in financial irresponsibility when they go to the ballot box in 2024. As it turns out, it might not have been a responsible idea to hire a guy who hasnât held down a real job in almost five decades to manage our money. Who knew?
