Two Golf Outings: $3 Million

And that’s just flight travel.

Taxpayers are doling outs lots of green so Obama can enjoy time on the green. Judicial Watch reports that, just this year alone (remember, it’s only May 1), just two of Obama’s golf extravaganzas have totaled roughly $3 million. And that’s only counting flight expenses. “According to the Department of Air Force documents,” writes Judicial Watch, “the flights to and from Palm Springs for the February 17-20, 2014 trip totaled 9.8 hours at $210,877 an hour, which comes to a total of $2,066,594.60 in flight expenses. … [T]he total cost for flights to and from Key Largo, Florida for the March 7-9 trip totaled 4.2 hours at $210,877, which comes to a total of $855,683.40 for flight expenses.” That’s not all. “[T]he Obamas and Bidens have spent more than $40 million taxpayer dollars on trips since 2009,” they add. For a couple of NeoComs who denounce “income inequality,” they sure aren’t leading by example.
