Michelle Obama’s Solo Hawaii Trip to Cost Taxpayers $100,000


obama-michelleFirst lady Michelle Obama’s separate voyage to Hawaii promises to cost taxpayers tens of thousand in extra dollars, as her separate entourage and hefty flying costs pile on the costs.

The military jet flight alone is priced at more than $60,000, according to government estimates. But that’s only the beginning. The additional cargo flight that often accompanies the first lady on such a trip must also be paid for, as well as the limos and other accoutrements it will contain.

As she will be separated from the presidential security bubble, Michelle will require her own entourage of Secret Service protection, in addition to the staffers who will be leaving early to go to Hawaii with her.

The total tab will certainly be in excess of $100,000, and possibly quite a bit more.

  1. As the presidents Wife she is allowed to spend taxpayer’s money for her personal vacation trips and needs. I don’t see anything wrong with that. We all have been there and done that. Its ultimately good for the economy.

  2. She didnt ask anyone for that kind of protection. those are the rules! She gets protected and they deserve it. Even though we want to get a new president elected it doesnt mean that obama wasn’t fairly elected! He is our president! HAIL TO THE KING!!!

  3. If this was Laura Bush, the media would have a nervous break down! There would be round the clock reporting on this with constant updates, every 5 seconds! Haters, like Cris Mathews & David Gregory would become ,

  4. I am really tired of how Michelle Obama can’t take the same plane as the president?
    Why can’t she stand being with him to save us
    $60 to $100,000.00?
    She is disgusting with her squandering of money that we are borrowing 40 cents of every dollar from our arch enemy, China.
    She should have to pay or the Democratic committee. This is all for photo and campaign ops and appearances. As a former Democrat, (former as in shafted by NAFTA), I absolutely hate Mrs. Obama. She has no concern for the poor, the working poor, or the middle and lower classes. 4 days has cost us $500,000 as that is the true cost of her trip.
