Letter: Obama’s Expensive Vacation
To the Editor:
While the White House (the people’s house) is closed to American taxpayers in order to save money, President Obama is taking his family and friends to Africa at those same taxpayers’ expense. The estimated cost is $60 million to $100 million dollars, all to visit Senegal, Tanzania, and South Africa — none of which seems particularly vital to current American interests.
With the Middle East blowing up, scandals raging at home and our national debt continuing to skyrocket, I guess the president just needs to get away.
