The Extravagance of the Obama Family
In three years, Michelle Obama took 16 vacations! She flies around the world on our taxpayer-funded plane while her husband tells us how he’s a friend of the middle class. The royal treatment doesn’t stop there; Obama has taken to throwing lavish dinners with celebrity chefs, event planners and has even had Beyonce perform for him and his guests. In May 2012, Obama threw a dinner for Mexican President Felipe Calderon that cost $969,793. Gary Walters, the Chief Usher for the White House for every President from Reagan to George W. Bush says the highest costing dinner he can remember was in the $190,000 to $200,000 range. It's good to be king!
