While the country is still suffering from a slow economy, President Obama went on a lavish Hawaii Christmas vacation that will leave taxpayers with the bill.

The Daily Mail reports:

President Barack Obama’s latest Hawaiian vacation with his family is costing U.S. taxpayers about $500,000 per day and $8.1 million over the course of his presidency, according to new reports published Tuesday.

A native Hawaiian, Obama has visited the islands while president eight times for an annual Christmas vacation – with another possible in December 2016, shortly before he leaves office.

The latest trip is costing Americans approximately $500,000 a day, according to a report in the Washington Examiner that was based on Department of Homeland Security documents of Secret Service expenses for the Obamas’ Dec. 2013-Jan. 2014 trip to Hawaii.

The documents were given to the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch by a federal court.

It must be nice to live on other people’s money.
