THE $70 MILLION ITINERARY
“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.
