Barack Obama is scheduled to return to Washington D.C. to finalize a tax and spend compromise with House Speaker John Boehner later this week. Michelle Obama will stay in Hawaii to continue vacationing and then fly back later on her own plane. Or perhaps Barack Obama will once again return to Hawaii and to add on a few more vacation days himself – all on the taxpayers’ dime of course…
(Squeeze those taxpayers for MORE Barack! Happy dance time!)
EXCERPT: (via WHD)
If Obama strikes an early deal on the fiscal cliff and then returns to Hawaii to finish up his vacation, the tab for taxpayers would be extraordinary. Air Force One costs about $180,000 an hour to fly, and the roundtrip taxpayer-funded ticket for the nine-hour flight would amount to about $3.24 million.
Obama plans to fly out of Hawaii Wednesday night at about 10:00 pm local time, which would get him to the White House at around 12:30 pm ET on Thursday. LINK
What’s another 3.24 million dollars between friends, right?
