Last Christmas, the Obama family jetted off to Hawaii for a luxurious two week vacation, courtesy of American taxpayers. The rented out a beachfront estate and lay around for 14 days spending as much money as they could, and it has now been revealed how much this vacation cost Americans.
According to Judicial Watch, these trips to Hawaii and to Martha’s Vineyard last year cost taxpayers $3,672,798 in flight expenses alone. Documents reveal the family spent 17.8 hours in the air round trip at $206,337.00 per hour.
It only gets worse from there. Over the past three years, the Obama family’s Christmas getaways in Hawaii have cost a total of $15,540,515.10 in transportation alone. Keep in mind, this does not include the money Obamas spend on the estates they rent and the meals they eat.
The estate the family regularly rents in Hawaii is described as “13 bedrooms, a prime location on Kailua beach and all the mod cons that the First Family could ask for … Beyond the lawn lies the famous beach, up which the waves roll majestically, 24 hours a day.”
“The Obamas’ travel is out of control. They are treating the Air Force One like an Uber ride. Our military deserves better. The Secret Service is stretched to the breaking point by President’s Obama’s abusive travel,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “And President Obama seems oblivious to the burden he is placing on Americans with his continuous vacations, getaways, and political junkets at taxpayer expense.”
It’s despicable that the money earned by hardworking Americans goes towards financing the Obama family’s ridiculous lifestyle. Shame on you, Barack, shame on you.
