When President Obama and his wife, First Lady Michelle Obama, filed their joint tax returns recently, it was revealed the couple’s income declined significantly in 2013. Their gross income was $481,098 last year, compared to $608,611 in 2012. But sources tell The National Protrusion that they also spent more money in 2013 than they had in years prior.
