Even White House chefs could be feeling the pain of government budget cuts.
Assistant chef Sam Kass, who cooks dinner for President Barack Obama several nights a week, said Tuesday that he will be furloughed as part of across-the-board budget cuts that went into effect in March.

Oh the HUMANITY!!! How will MOOCHELLE SURVIVE???? How can we do this to THE DEAR LEADER???
Who will cook for the hollywood partays???
From his abbreviated biography:
“While finishing his final college year abroad in 2003, Kass was trained by one of Austrias greatest chefs, Christian Domschitz in Vienna. “
Therein lies the problem...he was trained by a Domschitz....
Well who gonna cook those chitlins and fat back for Beyonce and JayZ
I thought they would be permanent party!
Mt hearts bleeds.....NOT!
I can guarantee one thing—Moochelle isn’t going to miss one meal.
Great news! Now how about furlogh for 1or 2 of the Whitehut Caligraphers?
Is McDonalds hiring?
If this is a ploy by Barry and Michelle to make the sequester seem draconian, it’s not working.
He wont be gone long - weekend? The Moose needs him to tend her exclusive and amazing garden that grows things over night!
Well this guy does have a 4 yr degree so he at least has a shot.
Michelle was probably jealous of Mario’s shoes....
Which probably means 1 day per week from late June through September...awwwww.
So, the solution? Popeye’s of course.
Moochelle has to have the WORST EVER taste in clothes and complementary colors!
Maybe you should Sue Chef????
Michelle looks like the HoJo’s mascot.
Quoting Gov Rick Perry: “Adios, MOFO”.
Well, looks like that 2-3” was a busted forecast!
If this keeps up, they’ll have to stop sending Air Force One out for pizzas more than once a week.
I am going to cry! Such a tragedy, the Asst Chef is being furloughed about 22 days a year. Well with all the Obama vacations the guy has more time off than he works already. This makes the news! The WH has to furlough the asst chef. Gee America has such a tragic state of economic times when the WH is affected by reduction of food makers.
The next news item is that the official dog walkers have to be cut back as BO will have to utilize a treadmill, because the groundskeepers had to layoff a couple of lawnmower operators and the 6 million dollars spent on the lawn upkeep has to be cut back. There is no more funds to place Scotts grass seed for the brown areas developed from BO’s peeing.
What does it matter? She would look the same in Coleman tent, no matter how you cover a Camel it is still a Camel!
Guess moocher will have to microwave her own lobster and pour her own ripple, now. /s
Am I the only American (natural or naturalized citizen) to wonder why the "sequestration" was presumably supposed to be "across the board" cuts...
It amounted to a reduction of 3% of the proposed next budget, and it is all or mostly a reduction of proposed increases...
Yet the cuts seem to be arbitrarily applied AND first to the critical needed services which are affected way beyond 3%; and...
Some pet programs and projects which fail by any standard, are still getting increases or are unaffected at all. The welfare components of "Social Security" are the most egregious examples.
What's the official explanation?
That is a serious question. Anybody know?
“Who will cook for the hollywood partays???”
The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.
I think the 2-3% is across the whole budget, but the decreases in increased spending comes out of just the discretionary part. The mandatory spending, like debt maintenance, stays fully funded.
That works out to a lot more than 2% for things that are impulse spending, like the Air Force that just grounded a substantial part of our defense. But imperative programs, like the $400,000 grant to study duck penises, are protected (I am *not* making that one up!).
And you are correct: The cuts are designed to hurt the public. Make no mistake. Obastard isn’t shy about that at all.
More likely the Assistant to the Assistant Wednesday Night Pastry Chef.
Yup, missed that forecast bigtime. FReepmail in a few.
They’ll just pay Mario Batali and Bobby Flay some obscene amount to come in and cook.
Whoopdeefreakin’ doo! One less chef they’ll be able to take on vacation with them.
TOTAL BS!!!! He (Sam Kass) will be paid in full later on. This is what always happens with these Federale furloughs
Feed Zippy on some of those delicious schoolag meals that the Sasquatch is so proud of.
Hey, obammy! Pay for something yourself you cheap son of a bitch!
In other words, he is going on vacation
Not to worry, Obumble’s food taster will be the last to go.
surprised we’don’t see more of him saying “hey michelle, taste this”...
Please allow me to nominate you for Post of The Day.
All in favor, say Aye...
Yup, we have a winnah!!!!
>”Therein lies the problem...he was trained by a Domschitz”<
And then he ended up working for one.
You're exactly right.
Plus, he can get an excellent position in the D.C. area!
The economy may suck but in Washington DC it is alwaysLaissez les bon temps roulez
The restaurant scene in DC/area is the wealthiest in the nation. I knew this before it was all spelled out on a Sean Hannity special. The pols/hacks/criminals/Federale employees/contractors who live off our tax dollars only eat the best made by the best!! Plus lobbyist money pours into DC from all corners of the globe and this flows into limousines, restaurants, high class call girls, etc.
Thus Chicago Sam Kass is one of the most networked chefs (meaning huge rolodex that translates into making millions after the White House) on the planet because all chefs who interact with the White House go through him. He also seems to be in charge of the White House garden and beehives, more names for his rolodex.
I kinda keep tack of him because he (seems to be) Jewish like me. He's Moochelles food and exercise adviser and a facilitator. She wants some special chefs to come over and cook (show their stuff to a larger world) on one of her White House "Soul Music" soirees? Sam Kass is the liaison and will arrange this or help arrange this and get entree for some chef buddy of his to get in on the action
SKass is Moochelles stooge not Hussein’s. He hangs out with, interacts with her people which I could only take for 5 minutes
Wsahington DC...where the party (via your taxdollars) never ends
Yep and where real estate prices continue to escalate!
