Does Barack Obama have even the slightest idea what the American people are going through? The fact alone, that he is on a vacation that will cost Americans $4 million for security says volumes. Exactly who do these people think they are? Other than a low budget trip to the mountains for an overnight camping trip, I haven't had a vacation in twenty years. Yet the Obama's will spend money as though there is no end and all the time driving the country into a Marxist/Socialist third world country. I get so angry when I see what they are doing I have no words to express it.
Let's take the Royal family of England as a comparison. It costs the taxpayers of England a whopping $57.8 million a year to support them, which includes maintenance and security, the people of England are not necessarily happy about this but it is what it is.
In comparison, the Royal Family of America a.k.a. the Obamas, cost us the taxpayers just in 2011 alone, $1.4 billion. The extravagance of their vacations is legendary. I wish I had the space to list them all but as an example, let's take his daughter's spring break in Oaxaca, Mexico, which cost the taxpayers $115,500.
Where and when will it end, who knows. It seems the Obamas can go where every they want and we the taxpayers get the privilege of paying the staff and security bills.
