Here’s something to keep in mind the next time Democrats claim they’re the party of the middle class. Since becoming president, Obama and his family have enjoyed vacations on the taxpayer’s dime to the tune of over $70 million dollars.
Have you taken a vacation in the last seven years that cost even two thousand dollars?
Andrew Malcolm reports at Investor’s Business Daily:
New Obama vacation costs uncovered; They now exceed $70 million
As Barack, Michelle, Malia and Sasha Obama, family, friends, pets and staff enjoy their half-month-long Hawaiian vacation, the Secret Service finally complied with a court order to release some Obama vacation expenses from two years ago.
That’s how eager the Obama administration is about being transparent when it comes to spending large sums of taxpayers’ money on itself.
As with the slow-motion releases of Hillary Clinton’s emails, the idea of bureaucratic stalling, of course, is that the details become “old” news more likely to be ignored by media. Fortunately, we’re not on vacation this week, so we can help the president out. Here goes:
The new expense reports, heavily-redacted allegedly for security reasons, push the total known costs for vacations during Obama’s reign to nearly $71 million — with another full year to go. That’s about $10.1 million per year in known expenses.
Judicial Watch has more on the Obama family’s most recent vacation.
Remember when Bush was president and the media would get outraged over things like this?
