During his time in the White House, President Obama has had no qualms about taking full advantage of the perks of being our leader. He’s often been criticized for using his authority to fuel his lavish lifestyle—from days on the golf course to travel around the world courtesy of Air Force One and American taxpayers.
Until recently, nobody was quite sure exactly what had been spent on the President’s travel. Now, it’s been revealed that Obama has spent $44,351,777.10 since being in the White House.
Of course, many of these dollars were spent on trips that actually had a diplomatic intention, but many more were spent on lavish vacations to Martha’s Vineyard, Key Largo, and Hawaii.
In March of last year, Obama had officially spent more time traveling than any other president in history. And Air Force One costs $180,000 an hour to fly within the country—and that is multiplied when international travel is involved.
What do you think? Are you sick of bearing the burden of Obama’s spending habits? Does he need to be kicked out of the White House before he drains America dry?
