Earlier this week, we reported that the Obamas are preparing to head off to Hawaii for their eight annual Christmas luxury vacation on taxpayers’ dime. Now, it has been revealed just how much this trip will cost the American people, and the figure is disturbing.
According to Daily Mail, fly time alone for the trip will cost taxpayers around $3.5million, since Air Force One costs $206,000 to run. Despite this hefty expense, Obama and his family have been accused of using Air Force One “like an Uber ride.”
Tom Fitton, the head of the Judicial Watch group, revealed that this proves Obama has lost touch with reality.
“The Obamas’ travel is out of control. They are treating the Air Force One like an Uber ride,” Fitton told AL.com. “And President Obama seems oblivious to the burden he is placing on Americans with his continuous vacations, getaways, and political junkets at taxpayer expense.”
This shows that the Obamas don’t care at all that most Americans can’t even afford to go home for Christmas. Shame on them for using OUR money to fund their ridiculous lifestyle!
