Hundreds of Millions for First Family Vacations?
In the six years Obama has been in the White House, he, his family and their traveling circus have gone on 38 exotically expensive vacations costing hundreds of millions of dollars, when you figure in military transports and security. And that does not include the enormous cost of economic disruption for anyone and everyone within a 50 mile radius of the POTUS. If they keep the same rate of vacations until January 2017, the Obamas will rack up 45 vacations at such places playgrounds of the rich and famous like Martha’s Vineyard, and resorts coast to coast, and in Hawaii. On top of that, add the family junkets to Asia and Africa. Recently, Judicial Watch’s obtained some of the travel expense records amounting to tens of millions. According to JD’s executive director Tom Fitton, “The Obamas are abusing the public trust and the taxpayers with unnecessary luxurious vacations and travel. These staggering costs show why these documents were covered up and we had to sue in federal court to get them.” Notably, the Obama’s are exercising an unlimited expense account, including huge demands for military transport and security, at a time when Obama’s sequestration cuts are choking American military capabilities.
