BOOM: All Of Obama’s Expensive Vacations Might Have Just Landed Him In HOT Water
The true costs taxpayers incur when President Obama’s “kingly entourage” goes on vacation may finally come to light now that the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch has sued to get the facts and is finally getting a response.
“We have little doubt the Secret Service, which is already mired in controversy, is covering up embarrassing numbers about the costs of security for Barack Obama’s vacation and political fundraising trips,” said Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton.
“Taxpayers, the U.S. Air Force and the Secret Service are being abused by Barack Obama, who too often treats Air Force One and his security detail like some of sort of kingly entourage,” said Fitton. “Taken together, the Obama family travel and Secret Service accommodations for the 2014 Martha’s Vineyard and Christmas Honolulu vacations cost taxpayers a total of $5,316,522.10. Does Barack Obama really think that over $5 million for two family vacations, which include nearly $1 million in Secret Service hotel bills for a two-week Martha’s Vineyard vacation, is an appropriate use of tax dollars?”
