Where is Obama right now? He is on vacation in Hawaii with his family. And to make matters worse, Judicial Watch have just revealed how much of taxpayer cash Obama has spent on himself and his family’s travel during his 8 years in office.
And the total makes our eyes water. To date, President Obama has spent more than $96 million on travel for himself and his family – a total that might exceed $100 million before the end of Obama’s presidency.
According to the Washington Examiner “the president’s high-price trips included a $1 million jaunt to the Everglades for a global warming speech, a $222,000 ski trip in Aspen taken by his wife and daughters and a $450,000 flight to a family vacation in Martha’s Vineyard this summer, conservative watchdog Judicial Watch announced Thursday.”
“Judicial Watch has kept a running tally of Obama’s travel expenditures by filing FOIA requests for the taxpayer money spent on Air Force One and Secret Service arrangements.”
“The Obamas notorious abuse of presidential travel perks wasted military resources and stressed the Secret Service,” Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch, said in a statement. “Judicial Watch estimates that the final costs of Obama’s unnecessary vacation and political travel will well exceed $100 million.”
Do y’all think Obama should have to pay this back? Has he just ripped off the country for some overseas holidays?!
