Obama may claim that he doesn’t have the money for White House Tours, an Easter Egg roll, or to house captured illegal aliens, but he certainly has the money to send his daughters to a 5 star resort in the Bahamas for Spring Break.
While no one should blame Sasha and Malia for being on vacation, it’s hard to understand how their father can justify denying taxpayers the opportunity to tour the White House while he spends hundreds of thousands of dollars to put his children up in the luxurious Atlantis resort. The Secret Service bill alone will undoubtedly run into six figures and that’s setting aside the cost of the resort, travel and the costs of partying at places like “Club Crush,” which calls itself the “ultimate nightclub for teens ages 13 to 17 and tweens ages 9 to 13 vacationing on Paradise Island.”
As Republican Congressman Ted Poe, (R-Texas) noted, “the people have been banned from the people’s house” because the Obama administration claims that it can’t afford the cost of Secret Service agents for tours. How many weeks of tours could have been paid for if Barack Obama cared enough to make sure Americans visiting the White House were taken care of first? Instead they’re being told to stay home while their tax dollars pay for one of an endless string of Obama family vacations.
How is it that Barack Obama seems to have virtually unlimited amounts of money for extravagant vacations and to send to nations that hate our country, but when it comes to programs that benefit the American people, he pleads poverty? Maybe someone should remind Barack Obama that the government is supposed to work for the taxpayers, not the other way around.
