The Obama family costs taxpayers $1.4 billion per year

October 3, 2012

Obama rents this $7.9 million vacation Home.Not nearly as nice as his new $40 million home again in Hawaii.

After four years of the Obama family as first family, they have cost the U.S. taxpayer 20 times more than British Royal Family.

According to a recently published book, Barack Obama and his family who constantly takes vacations along with their family and friends have cost the taxpayer $1.4 billion per year while the British Royal Family costs less than $60 million each year.

Two of the main costs of any presidency are staff and security. While nobody disputes that it is very important to keep the president of United states safe with paying for hundreds of Secret Service agents, travel in the secure space of Air Force One and funding a team of doctors to travel with the president.

What does get people angry is how many trips a president takes, the purpose of the trip and if his family goes along.

A trip to meet presidents and dignitaries in other countries for the sake of the American people where the president goes without his family, the cost remains low. When the president takes a family vacation the cost skyrockets. When the first family goes out to eat, sightseeing or shopping, it becomes a huge affair and a huge expense for taxpayers, as the whole family needs a full staff of secret service for security.

So far Michelle Obama has taken 16 trips which is more than any other first lady has taken, which is paid for by the U.S. taxpayer.

Additionally, a lot of the money spent by the Obama family goes for day to day luxuries in the White House like 24 hour entertainment and household help.

For example, the White House operates a movie theatre which is open 24 hours a day just in case one of the family members feels like a trip to the cinema. Even Obama’s dog Bo costs the taxpayer thousands of dollars. The dog’s handler is reportedly paid over $100,000 a year.

226 members of Mr. Obama’s staff are apparently paid over $100,000 per year and the President can increase their salaries at any time.

We are told by president Obama that we need to cut spending. We look to the Obamas as role models on how to live on a tight budget, instead we see a whole lot of spending for trips, eating out, (unhealthy food many times see video below) and a whole lot of extra luxuries which no other president ever had.

Where did Obama get $40 Million? From you.

 Obama’s New Home: 210 North Kalaheo Avenue – Kailua Beach, Hawaii.

Obama’s New Home: 210 North Kalaheo Avenue – Kailua Beach, Hawaii.

President Obama and his wife just closed on a mansion in Hawaii and plan to move – in January 2013!

Barack and Michelle Obama will be moving to Hawaii in January of 2013.  They have just purchase an estate in close proximity to land owned by the University of Hawaii, where the Obama presidential library and “political center” will be located. The estate is valued at $40 million.

This story was broken by .

Reports out of Washington are that Barack and Michelle are counting on a loss in November and are anxious to return to Hawaii to start their new life.  “They want the kids to attend high school in Hawaii, and they want to be as far away from Washington as possible,” said a source in the White House.

Michelle does not want to move back to Chicago and its winters  and Michelle’s mother, who’s been living in the White House with her daughter and her family, is “absolutely thrilled” to be relocating to Hawaii.

In fact, Michelle Obama’s mother, Marian Robinson, has been bragging about getting to live in Hawaii next, in a $40 million beachfront mansion after leaving the White House.  ”It was fun while it lasted”, Miss Marion is quoted by Chicagoans as saying, “but wait until you see the place they’re buying for Michelle and Barack!”

Here she is with a picture of their mansion in Hawaii:

For the past year, Democrats have been working on locating acceptable property in Hawaii for the Obamas to live. The land and its complex of buildings will be ready to move-into in January and has met all the requirements the Secret Service demands since the Obamas will be granted continued protection, by law, for nine years after Barack leaves office.

The Reagans, Clintons, and second Bush family all had their post-presidential homes purchased quietly on the side by friends when their times in office were coming to an end. The Obamas are doing the same thing now.

The woman who is organizing the funding of the Obama’s post-presidential estate is Penny Pritzker (pictured above with the Obamas).  She is also in charge of raising the donations for Obama’s presidential library and museum.  Pritzker is a billionaire who in recent years resolved a long-standing family feud over her late father’s vast business empire that includes the Hyatt Hotel chain as well as assorted manufacturing operations.

The wealthiest families in Chicago are being leaned on heavily to contribute with Penny aggressively guilting them with “appeals of you don’t want the President to be homeless in January, do you?”

There’s a movie theater in the mansion and it already is set up to play ALL of Obamas speeches over the last 20 years – in a continuous loop.

Joe Biden was also interested in buying a house in Hawaii, but the Obamas are encouraging him to find a place in Florida.  “Joe will be much happier there and the Obamas… well, they’ve seen enough of Joe,” said a source in the White House.

Even though the polls in the Presidential election are close, President Obama is already making his plans for January.

SO,  the Obamas will be leaving the White House soon… Hawaii, here they come!
