little bit of information published about an hour ago

Last week, the White House submitted to Congress a list of its staff members and their salaries. And it is amazing just how many millions of our tax dollars pay not just for President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden, but for all their support staff.

Overall, the White House payroll is getting bigger by the year, expanding from $37.1 million in 2010 to $37.8 million in 2011. The number of employees also grew, from 454 last year to 468 in 2012.
A huge chunk of those 468 employees are assistants to the President. The White House reported that Obama has 68 special assistants, 22 assistants and 24 deputy assistants.

Evidently it takes quite a few assistants to spend money willy-nilly (http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/willy-nilly).
