Obama's vacay to cost us $4 MILLION

Merry Christmas, ha ha ha!


$4 MILLION vacation: Separate flights, luxury hotels and plenty of golf… the price of Obama’s annual Hawaiian holiday soars
DailyMailBarack Obama’s annual vacation in Hawaii this year is likely to be his most expensive ever – and the majority of it is being funded by the taxpayer.  The President will travel separately to his family this time because he wants to resolve the payroll tax cut issue before leaving Washington D.C.
First Lady Michelle took their children this weekend in a flight that cost an extra $100,000 – and her husband’s round-trip journey will be $3,271,611.
The bill for the trip went up last week when Mrs Obama decided to take Sasha and Malia herself while her husband tries to save the U.S. economy According to the White House Dossier, Mrs Obama’s early trip to Hawaii cost about $100,000 including travel, security and personnel.  His flight was estimated by the Hawaii Reporter as the largest expense of the holiday trip, which will cost more than $4 million in total.
President Obama’s family covers the cost of a private beach front residence in Kailua, Oahu, for the holiday, which costs up to $3,500 a day, or $75,000 a month.  But taxpayers take care of housing for Secret Service, Coast Guard and Navy Seals who guard the rentals and arrive a day ahead of Mr Obama.  That is about $21,600 per home for approximately seven houses rented for 18 days. There is also a hotel bill for $72,216.
If you can stomach it, read the rest of the details here.
I know all the Presidents and their families have taken tax-payer funded vacations.  But really – $4 MILLION?  And this from the President that ordered agencies to cut travel and expenses.  Obviously Queen Michelle missed that memo.

  1. “The bill for the trip went up last week when Mrs Obama decided to take Sasha and Malia herself while her husband tries to save the U.S. economy.”
    I almost choked when I read this sentence, it should read “tries to finish off the U.S economy.”

     
  2. When that White House holiday solstice Christmas card, sent by Skippy & Moochelle, says “Happy Holidays,” what it really means is:

    “F*ck you, America.”

     
  3. Working is for us little people…
