Taxpayers spent $1.4 billion dollars on everything from staffing, housing, flying and entertaining President Obama and his family last year, according to the author of a new book on taxpayer-funded presidential perks.

In comparison, British taxpayers spent just $57.8 million on the royal family.

5 mind-blowing truths, exclusive with Michelle

1. Michelle thinks voting is a good idea. This is a novel admission that we haven’t heard from candidates or their wives, ever.

2. Sometimes she lets Bo sleep in her bed when Barack is out of town. It’s not what you think: Bo is the name of the first family’s Portuguese water dog.

3. Michelle didn’t just skip a science class here and there — she skipped the entire second grade.

4. The self-proclaimed health freak with the healthy eating “Let’s Move” campaign admitted that she once ate a fried Twinkie in Iowa. The hypocrisy is astounding.

5. Michelle didn’t make any mention of loving her husband, but she did admit that she “loves” sports.

I had to check what Finland forks out for the Prez.

Quote:The President's annual compensation is set in a special Act of Parliament and remains in effect until Parliament decides to change it. The President’s annual salary is €126,000, and the amount provided for expenses is €171,000 euro. In addition to this the President is entitled to a residence, the maintenance, heating, lighting and interior decoration of which as well as the necessary personnel are paid for out of State funds. The President’s spouse receives no remuneration or other benefits by virtue of that position.

Between 1919 and 1999 the President’s remuneration was stipulated separately in an Act of Parliament prior to each term of office, but since 1 March 2000 it can be reviewed, following the same procedure, at any time in the course of a term.

The President’s salary and housing benefits as well as the President’s pension and the family pension received by the spouse are tax-free. Other income or wealth are subject to tax in the normal way.
