First Lady Takes Another Vacation!

After only one month since the First Family's 17-day vacation in Hawaii, the First Lady has taken the girls to the slopes of Aspen. This makes the 16th vacation taken by Michelle Obama in the three years of being in the White House.

With unemployment still over 8%, gasoline prices almost $4 per gallon and the price of food and electricity skyrocketing, the First Lady is able to enjoy herself at the taxpayers' expense.

According the Hawaii Report newspaper, the 17-day trip to Hawaii in December, 2011, had a hefty price tag. Here is an itemized list.
  • $63,000 on an early flight bringing Mrs Obama and the children to Hawaii ahead of the President but add security and personnel for a total of about $100,000
  • $3,271,622 on Mr Obama’s return trip from Washington on Air Force One
  • $151,200 to rent nearby homes for Secret Service and Navy Seals
  • $72,216 for 24 White House staff to stay at the Moana Hotel
