Obama’s Vacations Cost American Taxpayers Over $85 MILLION Dollars

The Obama’s have squandered away over $85 million dollars on vacations.

On average, the first family spent approximately $10 million a year on travel and vacations.

Watchdog group Judicial Watch, which has kept track of presidential travel for years, received new info on the first family’s last Christmas vacation in Hawaii.

That trip total came to nearly $5 million.

The Obama’s are expected to return to Hawaii this Christmas.

The expenses cover security, flights and hotel rooms for staff and U.S. Secret Service.
