Your tax dollars at work: $1.4 billion spent on Obama vacations, entertainment, flights in 2011
You know Obama and Mooch need their rest and vacations. How else can you argue with the fact that a whopping $1.4 billion in tax payer dollars was wasted on Obama vacations, entertainment and flights in 2011 alone? Imagine what that $1.4 billion could do for the poor or middle class that Obama always claims to be for? If this isn’t a slap in the face to Americans, than I don’t know what is. $1.4 BILLION tax payer dollars spent on Obama vacations, entertainment (such as golf), flights (such as taking two separate jets to Martha’s Vineyard), etc. Still can’t comprehend who absolutely ridicoulus this is? The British taxpayers spent ‘only’ $57.8 million on the royal family’s vacations, entertainment, flights, etc last year.
Gray told The Daily Caller that the $1.4 billion spent on the Obama family last year is the “total cost of the presidency,” factoring the cost of the “biggest staff in history at the highest wages ever,” a 50 percent increase in the numbers of appointed czars and an Air Force One “running with the frequency of a scheduled air line.”
“The most concerning thing, I think, is the use of taxpayer funds to actually abet his re-election,” Gray, who worked in the Eisenhower administration and for other Republican presidents, said in an interview with TheDC on Wednesday.
“The press has been so slow in picking up on this extraordinary increase in the president’s expenses,” Gray told TheDC.
Specifically, Gray said taxpayer dollars are subsidizing Obama’s re-election effort when he uses Air Force One to jet across the country campaigning.
