Giving his wife a gift paid for by other people. How romantic.
WHITE HOUSE DOSSIER: Taxpayer Bill for Obama’s Hawaii Vacations: $20 Million
The $20 million figure is based on estimates of the cost of the four Hawaii vacations the Obamas have taken during Christmastime 2009-2012. According to a detailed breakdown by the Hawaii Reporter , the annual excursions in 2009, 2010, and 2011 cost about $4 million, much of it attributable to the expense of taking Air Force One, at an hour rate of about $180,000, on an eighteen-hour roundtrip journey to Honolulu and back.
