What Sequester?… Obama Family Returns to Martha’s Vineyard for Latest Vacation
Sequester?… What sequester?
Back in January 2009, Barack Obama told Americans that,
“Everyone must sacrifice… Everyone must have some skin in the game.”
Well… Everyone but Barack and Michelle Obama.
The Obama family is returning to Martha’s Vineyard for their latest vacation while the rest of the country suffers.
FOX News reported:
The first family is returning this summer to Martha’s Vineyard, the third time the Obamas have vacationed on the exclusive Massachusetts island in the past four years.
President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama will arrive August 10 and stay through August 18, the White House said earlier this month.
The vacation is drawing some criticism about the president relaxing among the rich and famous while drastic cuts to the federal budget known as sequester kick in with full force, including the start this month of furloughs for 85 percent of the Defense Department’s civilian workforce.
The family is reportedly staying near Chilmark pond in a “veddy private, veddy secluded and veddy posh island retreat,” writes Boston Herald columnist Gayle Fee.
