Taxpayer cost for Obama’s Hawaii extravaganza now at $20 million
I’m so glad that Americans re-elected the man who ‘connects so well’ with the middle class. I mean, everyone in the middle class needs a good $20 million Christmas/New Years tax payer funded extravaganza in HAwaii right? Surely, this coming December, all those in the ‘middle class’ will be popping off to the tropics and waste $20 million, now that those evil right people are paying their ‘fair share’ right? Yes, Obama’s on again, off again, Hawaii vacation costs you, me, and other tax payers a cool $20 million. Mr. Middle Class Obama thanks you for your generous donation.
Michelle Obama recently revealed that she and President Obama don’t give Christmas gifts to each other. They merely say, “We’re in Hawaii,” and that’s Christmas gift enough.
But actually the present is from taxpayers, and it’s an expensive one.
The total cost to taxpayers of Obama’s vacations to Hawaii since becoming president is likely in excess of $20 million, and possibly much, much more. During a time of budget deficits that threaten the nation’s security and its future, the Obamas have chosen to maintain a “family tradition” and vacation halfway around the world instead of finding far cheaper alternatives closer to home.
