America’s taxpayers are expected to pay a multimillion dollar tab for the First Family’s recent Christmas and New Year’s holiday trip to Kailua, Hawaii. Records obtained by Judicial Watch of their trip from December 2013 to January 2014 show American taxpayers were billed $7,781,361.30 to pay for the First Family’s flights then. You can read more about those records from Judicial Watch’s press release published then here. Judicial Watch has yet to obtain records for this recent trip and will continue to keep you updated about it. JW anticipates yet another increase in flight expenses and a bigger tab for American taxpayers, who continue to suffer in this dismal economy.
Read more about how taxpayers were billed more for the First Family’s trip in 2013 than in 2012, as quoted in the article:
Records obtained by Washington, D.C.-based Judicial Watch said “the flights to and from Honolulu for the December 2013-January 2014 Christmas vacation totaled 36.9 hours at $210,877 an hour, which comes to a flight expense alone of $7,781,361.30.”
That was an increase of $3.7 million in flight expenses Judicial Watch reported the Obamas incurred for their 2012 Honolulu Christmas vacation.
