$4 Million For Hawaiian Vacation? Put It On The Taxpayer’s Tab
“Mr. President, in case you haven’t heard; great leaders lead by example. You’re setting a horrible example.”
By Dell Hill
extremely difficult for me to sit here and accept the fact that over
four million of our tax dollars will be used to pay for a lengthy
vacation in Hawaii for the President of the United States. Most
especially when so many Americans are out of work and wondering how
they’re going to make ends meet, financially.
I don’t begrudge the President taking a vacation, but why at such great expense?
man just finished scolding all federal agencies for wasting money and
then turns around and wastes over four million all by himself!
Doug Ross brings us up to date on the latest multimillion dollar junket.
...Figures obtained by Hawaii Reporter
reveal the trip is expected to run taxpayers about $4 million. It has
already cost taxpayers about $100,000 extra just so first lady Michelle
Obama and the president’s daughters, Sasha and Malia, could leave Friday
before the president, according to White House Dossier...
...Hawaii Reporter’s comprehensive breakdown uses government data to calculate travel, housing, hotel and local costs...
...White House press secretary Jay Carney was asked about the vacation’s cost at a briefing last week. He dodged questions about Michelle Obama’s desire to travel separately from the president.
With all of the vacations and golf, it's a wonder he's been able to eviscerate so much of America's economy!”
Dell’s Bottom Line: Perhaps we will remember in November!
we’ll send this President back to Illinois, where he can pay the
exorbitant amounts of money for the lush accommodations in Hawaii OUT OF
HIS OWN POCKET!
