President paying for family vacation

info@islandpacket.comApril 8, 2013 

Why are Republicans in such an uproar about Michelle Obama and her daughters going to the Bahamas for spring break? Please check your facts; it is not being funded by us.

The president and his family pay for all personal expenses, food and lodging during vacations, and they do not hide this fact. More importantly, Republicans should be thinking about how Mark Sanford actually did use taxpayer money unbeknownst to them on his trips to Argentina for a deceptive affair. Not only that, he lied to his constituents about his whereabouts. Talk about an uproar.
