Obama’s LIVID After His Daughters’ Info Is Leaked… They’re As Bad As Michelle
President Barack Obama and wife Michelle are hardly known for their conscientious spending habits. In fact, they have developed quite a reputation for being spendthrifts when it comes to taxpayer money — and their frequent, lavish vacations are evidence of that.
So while it should come as no surprise how much he spends on private school for his daughters Sasha and Malia, it is still shocking to see the numbers on paper, as many people in this country struggle from paycheck to paycheck.
According to its website, Sidwell Friends School, where the first daughters attend classes, charges $37,750 per calendar year for tuition in the upper and lower schools.
That cost might include a hot lunch, but it does not cover middle school textbooks or a laptop fee, which is another $440. Upper school textbooks cost anywhere between $500 and $700.
Optional bus transportation comes in at $900 while daily trips between the Washington, D.C., and Bethesda, Maryland, campuses cost $1,325 round trip. Optional pre-school care costs anywhere from $225 to $1,000 and lower to middle-school aftercare ranges from $1,500 to $2,800 per week.
