#SaveTheStaffers: Delicious mockery of Wasserman Schultz’s starving staff


Thanks to Sequesterpocalygeddon, Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s staffers are starving. Serious You Guys.

OMG! The #sequester might force Debbie Wasserman-Schultz’ aides to – GASP! – eat like the rest of us??? The HORROR!

— RB (@RBPundit) March 22, 2013’s Mike Flynn reports:

She, almost literally, suggested that her staff were on the brink of starvation, due to the cuts.

Speaking at a hearing of the House Legislative Branch Appropriations Subcommittee, Wasserman Schultz worried that prices of meals in House restaurants are getting so high that aides are being “priced out” of a good meal.

If we had an impartial media, @dwstweets complaining that her staff has to eat like everyone else in the country would be major news.

Just how much do these paupers earn?

[email protected]dwstweets your aids earn between $60k-$160K but they can’t afford lunch. What do they eat Lobster and Prime Rib?

Well, then let them eat … fancy-pants cafe fare?

Flynn reports that gourmet sandwiches run a whopping $5 at the carry-out cafe in the Cannon Office Building. And at the Longworth Building across the street, the situation is even more dire.

I’m really worried that @dwstweets staff might find $7 stuffed chicken w/asparagus to be a hardship. #SequesterHorror

Things are getting pretty bad out there.

I don’t think I’ll be able to sleep tonight knowing @dwstweets‘ staff didn’t have a good dinner. We must #SaveDebbiesStaff.

I heard @dwstweets‘ Chief of Staff had to eat dinner at Outback instead of The Palm. This isn’t the America I grew up in. #SaveDebbiesStaff

A report has just come in that @dwstweets‘ staff has been forced to eat Hydrox instead of Oreos. Appalling.

Won’t somebody think of the staffers?

Poor babies. Maybe we can sponsor them, get Sally Struthers to make an ad about it. @jimmiebjr @dwstweets#SaveTheStaffers

Ad copy: “Every day, a congressional aide risks having to bring his lunch from home. Please help.” #SaveTheStaffers @jimmiebjr @dwstweets

@laura_ph For just thirty dollars a day, you can adopt a staffer’s venti latte, ribeye sandwich, and [email protected]jimmiebjr @dwstweets

@hale_razor Will we get a photo & a letter from the staffer we adopt? @laura_ph @jimmiebjr @dwstweets

Argh, had to correct the text in the graphic. @bradcundiff @jimmiebjr @conkc2 @hale_razor @dwstweets #SaveTheStaffers…

Paging Joe Biden: For just the cost of a one-night Paris hotel stay

just think @dwstweets how many of your ‘staff” could be kept from ‘starving’ for one night cost of @joebiden in London…what an idiot
