Top 4 Most Wasteful Michelle Obama Vacations
Bert Atkinson Jr. | On 18, Jul 2012
Michelle Obama and her two daughters took a ski trip to Aspen over President’s Day weekend in February. Judicial Watch, a public interest group that investigates and fights government corruption, announced that the vacation cost at least $83,182.99. According to Judicial Watch’s report: The bill for the U.S. Secret Service, including accommodations at the Fasching Haus Deluxe condominium and the Inn at Aspen, totaled $48,950.38. The cost for the flight, per official Department of Defense published hourly rates, was $22,583.70. Food and miscellaneous on-flight items cost $235.44. Rental car costs totaled $6,442.23. Keep in mind, regardless of the President, he (or a future she) will spend startling amounts of money in travel. But, for a President that can’t get unemployment down and has earned the title of the ‘Undisputed Debt King,’ news of lavish vacations will certainly serve to be a slap in American faces. Even if a Republican was in office, it would still be a slap in my face to see the Secret Service spending a mere $50,000 on shelter over a weekend.
