One of the reasons i am so thrilled to fork over every penny i can find every april 15th ( on top of us paying the palestinians to be nice to Isreal) http://watchdog.org/191717/first-familys-holiday-vacation/
I know—-a President needs his vacation—and it costs us to protect him while on said vacation…but…gulp…..”The most pricey charge to taxpayers is the flight to Oahu from Washington, D.C.
obtained by Washington, D.C.-based Judicial Watch said âthe flights to and from Honolulu for the December 2013-January 2014 Christmas vacation totaled 36.9 hours at $210,877 an hour, which comes to a flight expense alone of $7,781,361.30.â” ??
And He needs his wheels while over there—”The cost for USAF C-17 cargo aircraft that transports presidential limos, helicopters and other support equipment to Hawaii has never been disclosed, but the round-trip flight time between Andrews Air Force Base and Hawaii is 21.5 hours, with estimated operating cost of $12,000 per hour, according to an U.S. Government Accountability Office report.
”The administration also rents cars for staff and security, and pays additional travel costs for Secret Service and White House staff traveling ahead of the president.
None of those costs have ever been released to the public.” 16 days of vacation! wow.
guh—–gotta get back to work—i hear my tax bill getting larger.
