The Price Tag of This Year’s Obama Family Christmas Vacation
December 23rd, 2013
As always, the Obama family vacations come with a high price tag, and you, of course, are footing the bill if you happen to be a taxpayer. They have returned to Hawaii for this year’s Christmas extravaganza, and the conservative estimate for the vacation is $4 million – more than most of us will earn in a lifetime for a two week respite for the President and his family.
Even the Obama family dog is getting a nicer Christmas vacation than most Americans. Meanwhile, for poverty stricken Americans, fights are breaking out at Salvation Army as people slug it out over donated toys to put under the tree for their children, food banks are strapped as they try to provide holiday dinners for the poor, many of whom have lost their jobs to Obamacare, and more and more people have become classified as “the working poor” as they struggle to keep the utilities on and their children fed and clothed.
Well, if they have no bread, then let them eat cake, because the Obamas need a vacation. It’s hard work, stomping on the flag, destroying the Constitution, and dragging down the little guy.
Lest you think we are paying the entire tab, you’ll be delighted to know that the President and his cronies pay the $25,000 per week rent on the house that the First Family resides in while in the tropical paradise. Sadly, this gesture of fairness is a drop in the bucket when compared to the taxpayer’s portion of the vacation bill.
