The Cost Of President Obama's Christmas Holiday
So the President and his family are travelling to Hawaii the Christmas season for their vacation lasting a few weeks. So how much is this vacation going to cost the US tax payer in a time when the National Debt is at its highest, and the possible of a tax increase may just be in sight for the start of 2012? An assessment of the numbers shows that it will likely be the 44th president’s most expensive vacation to date.
The Blaze Reports:
Is this the price the US tax payer has to pay for electing a President that doesn't own their own home? Because this is an expensive vacation, you will not see me paying more than $4 million on a holiday.
Previous President go home for their Holidays. President Bush spent a lot of time at his Ranch in Texas, security was easy because their were no close neighbours or buildings that needed to be rented out and he was able to host the team that came with him.
That is why Camp David was set up for Presidents to get away from the White House and go on Vacation, and area that is already secure for them and is cheap compared to renting out the entire Island of Hawaii to keep the President safe.
