Everybody Must Sacrifice & Have Skin in the Game But He … Obama’s Latest Vacation to Hawaii Cost Tax Payers $7 Million, What a Message to Struggling Americans



Remember those famous words from Barack Obama in 2009 during an interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos? No not the one where George had to remind Barack that he was a Christian and not Muslim (VIDEO). Actually we are referring to the one below where Obama tells America that “Everyone must sacrifice … Everyone must have some skin in the game.” That is everyone except Barack, Michelle and the rest of the first family. As Obama says about everything he inflicts upon “We the People” … It is for thee, not for me.

As reported at the Telegraph, Barack Obama’s $7 million Hawaii vacation is an insult to America’s struggling middle class. With the nation at $16.4 trillion and counting, Obama expects John Q. Public to sacrifice, yet Barack an the first family get to vacation in Hawaii at a cost of $7 million to the tax payers. NICE.  Isn’t it peculiar that Obama demonized the so-called rich during the election, yet he expects the 98% to pay for his 1% vacations?

$16.4 trillion – that’s the latest figure for America’s massive national debt. Nearly $6 trillion of this debt was racked up in the first term of the Obama presidency – a 50 percent increase. It is horrifying to imagine what the debt will be when Obama leaves the White House in 2016, unless Congress has the willpower to stand in the way.

Meanwhile, as the world’s superpower is literally drowning in debt, President Obama is basking in the warmth of the beaches of Hawaii, at an exclusive resort way beyond the financial reach of most Americans. The president pays the cost of his own family’s accommodations, but there are a large number of associated costs which are paid from the public purse.

What is the actual cost of Obama’s lavish vacation to the American taxpayer? A staggering $7 million, according to veteran White House reporter Keith Koffler, who wrote in his blog earlier this week:

      The message he’s sending out is same as the next article where welfare dollars are being spent on strip clubs. That message is:

      “I’m allowed because I’m entitled – you are nothing and I am everything – e need to spread the wealth around (especially to those who don’t earn it or deserve it) – you got a problem with it – touch sh*t!”

      How stupid we Americans are to let this go on! The libs complain about Bush going on vacation to his ranch in Texas but it didnt cost no 7mil each time he went.

      Wonder if this vacant dude could
      treat his own wealth the way he’s
      massacring ours?
