There are 5 chefs on Air Force One!

“A new book is out talking about the perks and the excess of the $1.4-billion-a-year presidency that we’re paying for.   And this is a lifestyle that is one of excess.   Now we find out that there are five chefs on Air Force One.   There are two projectionists who operate the White House movie theater.   They regularly sleep at the White House in order to be readily available in case the first family wants a really, really late show.   And I don’t mean to be petty here, but can’t they just push the play button?   We are also the ones who are paying for someone to walk the president’s dog, paying for someone to walk the president’s dog?   Now, why are we doing that when we can’t even get a disabled veteran into the White House for a White House tour?   That isn’t caring!”

— Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.), speaking at the Conservative Political Action Conference, March 16, 2013
