The Obamas Turn Down $100,000

The Obamas have decided to turn down a great deal of federal funds that would provide for redecoration of the private residence and Oval office of The White House. The Obama family has decided to use their own funds for sprucing up The White House instead of the proposed $100,000 federal budget. Funds are made available to each President to revamp their living quarters and the Bushes did their fair share of redecorating. Former President Bush replaced the carpet in the Oval office with a design by Laura Bush that cost a whopping $60,000! Obama aides state that President Obama is content with the carpet and has no plans on replacing it. I respect that fact that in the midst of an economic crisis, The Obamas are taking the appropriate measures to cut back as well.
