Nixon to State Workers: Let Them Eat Cake!

 “Liar” Jack Cardetti in Houston with his VIP credentials

Jay Nixon is willing to cut state employees and reduce employee holidays to save money, but is Jay willing to look closer to home at truly non-essential state personnel during these desperate times? Do Missouri taxpayers and state workers know that the Mansion Director makes $39,984 a year? And did they know that the Assistant to the First Lady makes a whopping $49,992 annually? The Nixon Housekeeper makes $22,992 annually and their Chef earns $45,096 a year. While thousands in Missouri are just struggling to stay above financial water and provide for their families, the King Louis XVI of Missouri is living large at taxpayer expense. It’s good to know the Nixons’ are being spared the basic cooking and cleaning chores that working mothers (and many fathers) do every day as they struggle to make ends meet. As Marie Antoinette once said before she lost her head: “Let Them Eat Cake!” State workers are listening.

    okay so I don’t have any use for Nixon either but c’mon, this stuff has been this way in Missouri forever. I don’t remember anyone taking Blunt to task for the same things AND he flew back and forth daily between Springfield and JC without a peep from his toe suckers in the media.

    Give the hate a rest. We get it you don’t like the guy but you look petty. Fact is he is the Governor and his wife is the 1st lady. The mansion belongs to us, the taxpayers and cleaning and maintenance is our responsibility. When we have a Republican governor he’ll get the same advantages and I doubt you’ll hear a word about it from you guys.

    When do we get past all this petty name calling and bickering and just do the people’s business? We are all so sick of you in the media and your hype and hate and the politicians and their BS.
    This partisan crap has to stop if there is to be any hope for America.

    Did Matt Blunt layoff state workers while retaining incompetent cronies and liars on the state payroll?
