THE $70 MIL­LION ITIN­ER­ARY

The Washington Times Weekly - - Politics -

“We have new records from the U.S. Air Force re­veal­ing that Pres­i­dent Obama and fam­ily had a busy 2015, va­ca­tion­ing on the Amer­i­can tax­pay­ers’ dime. The un­nec­es­sary travel in­cluded an Obama Palm Springs golf trip in June, a trip to New York City in July and a fam­ily trip to Martha’s Vine­yard in Au­gust — all of which cost tax­pay­ers $3,115,688.70 in travel ex­penses alone,” says Tom Fit­ton, pres­i­dent of Ju­di­cial Watch, and a reg­u­lar tracker of such ex­penses.

He got his in­for­ma­tion from three Free­dom of In­for­ma­tion Act re­quests filed in June, July and Au­gust.

Mr. Fit­ton has a some­what hair-rais­ing ad­den­dum re­gard­ing Mr. Obama and Vice Pres­i­dent Joseph R. Bi­den over their en­tire term of of­fice: “To date, the to­tal known ex­penses for travel by the Oba­mas and Bi­dens are cur­rently $70,563,336.75,” he says.
