SHOCKING: Obama Family Vacation Cost To Taxpayers Revealed…This Number Will DISGUST You!

Rest easy, taxpayers. Keep in mind, as you read this: President Obama’s only got a few more days in office.

And he’ll be gone, unable to waste taxpayer dollars on glitzy White House perks, like family vacations, ever again.

Thank goodness for term limits, right?

Here’s the heart-thumping story: The numbers are in and it looks like taxpayers were on the hook for quite a bit for the First Family’s Hawaiian vacation during the Christmas season in 2015. How much, exactly?

Judicial Watch, the nonprofit government watchdog organization, received a partial fulfillment of its Freedom of Information Act request, and found: taxpayers footed $4.8 million…and some change.

The costs were due the outfitting of several Secret Service agents at nearby hotel rooms, the helicopter ride to and from the island, and whatever accompanying incidentals that could be covered.

“Presidents pay for their own and their families’ lodging, food and incidentals while on vacation, which may be why they generally prefer to stay at properties they own, as guests of wealthy friends or at the official president retreat at Camp David,” the Washington Post reported.

But as Independent Journal Review noted: Taxpayers pick up the costs of the staffers who travel with the president’s family.

Judicial Watch’s president, Tom Fitton, said in a statement the Secret Service and Air Force were “being abused by unnecessary travel.” And when you look at the rest of Judicial Watch’s FOIA findings on Obama’s family vacation costs for his entire presidency, Fitton has a point.

“Judicial Watch said the current president’s vacations so far have cost taxpayers $85 million,” IJR reported.

Yeah, that’s a big number. A stupid big number. We are SO thankful to be done with this guy!
