    Republicans love to spend money, they just don't want to raise taxes to pay for it. See two wars and Medicare Part D, all thrown on the national debt, now they are trying to cut funding for the ACA, but not cutting benefits or raising revenue from a different source, more deficit. And in the meantime we have been waiting 35 years for the trickle down to begin and all we have is this 3rd world GINI score to show for it.
    Thanks from Dangermouse

    Wonder how much it cost for the do nothing leaders in Congress? We pay for their protection and other expenses,to I have never before seen so much hate and derision of a President who has accomplished so much to undo damage caused by the former occupant of the White House.

    The issue is not that the president is resting, the question is, how much he spends on it (note, not personal money) and does he deserve it?
    He doesn't give a damn about the expense to the taxpayer plain and simple.
    I`m frightened realizing that fly to and from Hawaii costs $7,7 million
    This President grew up in Hawii. The Bushes went to Kennebunkport or Texas. Reagan went to Santa Barbara...whatever. Air Force One..is a flying White House... and it's gonna cost to go anywhere. There's a BUNCH of Staff..security..but they are on the payroll wherever they are. Because ANY President..is "on call" 24/7 the majority of the COST of any President and staff... is there ...even if mobile. Look back over recent years....few BILLS were gonna be good for the Right wing House and a Dem Senate. In reality..... the POTUS could have done most of whatever from almost anywhere.

    This shit is a LAME bunch of third rate PROPAGANDA... as if Mitt had won the Repub Fringe would bitch about where he vacationed and what it costs. In actual salary... an NBA rookie makes more $ than the POTUS. However.. ANY POTUS has certain perks,benefits. A President does not shop for groceries, stop at gas stations, pay for bodyguards,medical care...etc etc. It's not THE NEGRO GUY you hate.. it's ANY President. They all get the "vacation" thing...and Obama has taken LESS than most.
    Thanks from Hollywood, Dangermouse and OldGaffer

    How much would his transport and protection have cost anyway if he went to Six Flags, or just stayed in the WH?

    Repubs/Cons will bitch and moan about the Dem president and his vacation spending.

    Dems/Libs will bitch and moan about the Repub president and his vacation spending.

    Is there STILL anyone out there who does not understand this?

    They should pass legislation that every President, once elected, must spend his entire term or terms bunkered up in the White House to save taxpayer money on security. GMAFB

    Make those spendthrift POTUS's stay in the White House, actually, the White House is way too nice for them, they should have to rent an apartment somewhere in DC and have a couple of cheap security guards hang out to guard it.
