This is simply disgusting!
Seven years ago, then-Sen. Barack Hussein Obama promised Americans that he would refrain from taking vacations — particularly excessive ones — if he were elected president.
The latest report from Judicial Watch makes it clear that he lied to get elected (as if that had been in doubt).
Specifically, the report revealed that Obama has spent $3,115,688.70 on travel expenses this year alone making unnecessary trips to Palm Springs, New York City and Martha’s Vineyard.
Obama’s outing to Palm Springs in June, which in itself cost $2,187,172.20, was for playing golf, while his trip to New York City the following month was for hanging out and “sightseeing” with daughters Sasha and Malia.
His final trip, made in August, was for playing golf again, this time with former president and possible accessory to murder Bill Clinton, as well as a few others.
“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.
Note also that the $3,115,688.70 price tag does not take into consideration security costs, which have yet to be revealed by the Secret Service.
Furthermore, the total amount of vacation expenses accrued by both the Obamas and the Bidens during the past seven years is a ridiculous $70,563,336.75.
And yet this same man just recently vetoed a defense bill that would have empowered our soldiers overseas with the tools and equipment they need to keep fighting the good fight.
He spits in the face of the American people time and again with blatant disregard for the working class and our military by ensuring a constant rise in costs with less pay, while he has no cognizance of budget himself.
