Judicial Watch just released it’s latest report on the taxpayer funded vacations resident Obama has taken and it’s a staggering number. This year, so far, he’s taken vacas to Palm Springs to golf, New York to hang out and sightsee with his daughters and Martha’s Vineyard to golf with Bill Clinton.
The total amount due for these fun-filled jaunts? $3,115,688.70 and that doesn’t include security costs because the Secret Service hasn’t reported those yet.
If that dollar amount hasn’t raised your blood pressure, here’s the total for all the vacations the Obamas and the Bidens have taken in the past seven years, $70,563,336.75.
“President Obama evidently cares not one whit about the costs to beleaguered taxpayers for his personal and political travel,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said in regard to these expensive excursions. Fitton added that it was highly inappropriate for Obama to use Air Force One, as well as “an army of law enforcement,” just to go sightseeing in New York with his daughters. “Barack Obama is enamored with the presidency’s trappings of power, and taxpayers are left holding the tab,” Fitton concluded.
