Taxpayers will pick up multimillion dollar bill despite Obama's fundraising stop
Taxpayers will be stuck with an enormous bill after President Obamas southern California fundraising tour, KUSIs Steve Bosh reports.
With his partys Senate majority under siege, President Obama will attend a $10,000 per plate fundraiser at the home of Qualcomm founder Irwin Jacobs.
Bosh noted because of technicalities in the presidents schedule, taxpayers will actually pick up the tab for the entire trip despite the fundraising stop:
STEVE BOSH: Then theres the cost to taxpayers when the president travels to official or political events, like the visit to San Diego during his re-election campaign. The taxpayer cost for Air Force One alone is $228,228 per flight hour. And this White House has taken a lot of vacations, which adds to the bill.

I got stuck in traffic gridlock while leaving the VA Hospital in La Jolla (San Diego). All the freeways were brought to a standstill as the emperor’s motorcade went by on the way to the airport to go to LA for yet another fund raiser.
NRO tallied what taxpayers are paying for M/M O to live large on the taxpayers' dime: a grand total of $1.4 billion per year: Air Force One ($181,757 per hour), executive chef ($100,000 per year), three full-time White House calligraphers ($277,050 per year for the trio), chief of staff to the presidents dog ($102,000 per year), Ohaha's royal motorcade ($2.2 million). $100 million alone for the African apology tour.
$1.4 BILLION is the current annual cost of the White House just in household expenses, not including US policy operations for which the WH exists-- administered by some 900 parasites--- policy staff recruited by Ohaha.
There's the $100 million trip to Africa not including the foreign aid billions O handed out to these oil-rich satraps. There's serial Ohaha vacations costing taxpayers millions---- (the low estimate Hawaii vacays is $4 million each, but is probably five times that); the pricey Martha's Vineyard stays; Mrs O's costly trip to elite Marbella w/ an entourage of 30. Mrs O's $3900 PER NIGHT in Ireland PLUS 30 more rooms for her entourage. And the pricey China trip.
TAXPAYERS SUFFERED RUINOUS HEALTHCARE CANCELLATIONS--BUT THEY PAY $7 MILLION FOR THE OBAMAS HEALTHCARE---NRO found the first familys yearly health-care costs Americans $7 million; the reason why only Boobamba himself was (ahem) "enrolled" --and not his family.
Diamonds are a girl's best friend on hubby's govt salary.
Mrs O wore another collection of pricey diamond bangles (bought on a govt salary?) at a DNC fund-raiser, attended by "tolerant and compassionate" Dems....raised big bucks to keep Mr O in office so he could work for "the poor." Her diamond Gothic cuff priced at $15,350 set with 2.17 carats in diamonds and the Quatrefoil bracelet at $11,800 set with 1.73 carats in diamonds. (Excerpt) Read more at houston.culturemap.com.
Mrs O wowed all the "tolerant and compassionate" Dems who hate the rich and support endless tax-paid programs "for the poor."
Mrs O has 24 assistants (that she admits to) at her beck and call.
Technicalities? HA! That’s rich!
Obozo deliberately structures his travel in such a way as to stick taxpayers with the bill for his campaigning.
It’s very Alinsky of him.
All-time champion grifters, they are.

La Jolla one of our favorite week end get a way spots park the car friday and its just walk around the town till monday
The fund raising krap that this guy is pulling off would have sent the so called “guardians of the public trust “ (media) screamimg “not at public expence” if this was a Republican.
What gets me is the silence from that leadership on this matter. He’s been rewarding campaign donors with these damm trips all over the world. All but one or two conservative congress members are saying anything..But they’re racist.
Yep. And their Dear Leader spends millions of the Workin' Man's dollars to raise millions of dollars from multimillionaires so that the government can spend billions more dollars on worthless endeavors designed to keep the Workin' Man voting for Democrats.
Nice work, if you can get it.
leaving behind unpaid Bills ,the One thing Obama is VERY VERY GOOD at
$10,000 per plate fundraiser talk about the land of chimps wonder how many bananas were allowed per plate.
A chance to play cards with them on a slow boat would be a dream come true and three card Monte agrees.
Nothing like the "fragrance" of bird and sea lion poop wafting through the restaurant district. You could get a hot meal for free...just slightly used by a customer with a weak stomach.
Nope, not even close.
Thank god I didn’t have any appointments yesterday, I was Tuesday though.
