Government printer clarifies Robert Gibbs joke
Check your mailbox, Robert Gibbs: Your printing card is in the mail.
The head of the Government Printing Office said Tuesday that he appreciates the White House press secretary's joke about printing the federal budget, but sought to clarify how the government prints copies of the document.
Gibbs said Monday that he wouldn't comment on next year's federal budget until it returned from the printers.
"And when it comes back from Kinko's, we'll be able to talk about it," Gibbs joked. He quickly noted that "It's not really at Kinko's, though."
"While the printing of the federal budget is not ideal for GPOExpress, more than 40,000 jobs have gone through the program, saving taxpayers 70 percent off retail prices," Tapella said.
"I will send Mr. Gibbs his own personal GPOExpress card, so the White House Press Office can take advantage of the discounts offered by the program."
Just watch out for paper cuts, Robert.
