It is patriotic to pay higher taxes

Tax rates will have to increase because, in these hard times, the government needs the money.  One of the things that the government needs to the money for is a full-time make-up artist for Michelle Obama.  The NY post reports that this is a first: Ms. Obama "is the nation's first first lady to add a full-time makeup artist to her traveling entourage." 

According to the White House, "[t]he Obamas privately paid for the travel expenses of the styling team" but there was no mention in the article of privately paying for their salaries or at what rate the government was reimbursed for the travel expenses.
