Daniel Harper:

With the White House closing its doors to public tour groups in order to save money for the sequester, it’s worth remembering some of the other costs the White House incurs annually.

Like the “Chief Calligrapher,” Patricia A. Blair, who has an annual salary of $96,725, and her two deputies, Debra S. Brown, who gets paid $85,953 per year, and Richard T. Muffler, who gets paid $94,372 every year.

It takes a chief and two deputies to write fancy invitations to posh White House events.

But in all fairness, the events are very posh.

He's one of the hosts on PJTV, and one-third of PJTV's Trifecta team with Scott Ott and Bill Whittle. Steve lives with his wife and sons in the hills and woods of Monument, Colorado, where he enjoys the occasional lovely adult beverage.

Don't forget the War on Women that shows.
Patricia, the chief, makes barely 2.5% more than Richard, her male subordinate, who makes nearly 10% more than Debra, his female coworker.
I guess they haven't written up anything about equal pay for equal work for the White House.
