Upcoming election isn’t about past travel costs

Print Article

According to Judicial Watch, the total expense to the American taxpayers thus far for all Obama travel is now $70,880,035.78!!! That’s almost $71 Million! How many senior citizens will that feed?

Flight expense records from the US Dept. of the Air Force reveal that Obama incurred $7,396,531.20 in flight expenses alone for his 2013 vacations to Hawaii and Martha’s Vineyard and his trip to California to appear on the Jay Leno Show. And, as far as billionaires go, Obama has been hosted by Oracle billionaire Larry Ellison, et al.

Sadly, there’s nothing we can do about these past expenditures.

And, in reference to the previous letter, being wealthy doesn’t make one a bad person just as being poor does not make someone a bad person. Being a great entertainer does not automatically make a person an effective congressman.

More to the point, what Trump spends on travel and Obama has spent has little to do with this upcoming election for a replacement congressman.

We all know this election is about liberalism and big government control versus conservatism and less government control. It is about appointing Supreme Court Justices who follow the Constitution without re-interpreting it or twisting it. It is about upholding the Rule Of Law.

This is an important election. Please do not sell out our heritage just because you like someone’s tune.
