The Daily Caller is reporting this morning that in 2013, President Obama, who seems to have an addiction to playing golf, took Air Force One to Florida to play a round with Tiger Woods… costing the American taxpayers $3.6 million dollars.
‘From Feb. 15-18 in 2013, the president went on a four day trip that included an official speech in Chicago and some leisure time in Palm Beach, Florida.
According to a forthcoming report by the Government Accountability Office that was obtained early by The Daily Caller, the government spent a total of $3.6 million to fly, protect and support the president during this trip to Illinois and Florida.
The GAO report was requested by Sen. John Barrasso, a Republican senator from Wyoming. The letter was sent during the political debates of 2013 over the automatic spending cuts to government services, known as sequestration.’
In a time when government required insurance premiums are increasing exponentially and there is a real threat of tax hikes, why would anyone believe the President’s vacation was worth this much money as paid by the taxpayers themselves?
