Sequester Doesn’t Stop Obama’s Daughters From Spending Spring Break At Luxurious Atlantis Resort in Bahamas

Would you allow your 14 and 12 year old daughters to go on a spring break trip?  Probably not, I know I never did.  As a matter of fact, I don’t believe in the whole spring break trip thing because it usually leads to behaviors that I consider very inappropriate for adults, let alone teenagers and pre-teen.

In the midst of the sequestration cuts when federal budgets are being slashed left and right, workers being furloughed, our border protection weakened, air traffic control towers closing, Malia and Sasha Obama are living it up at a very expensive resort on our tax dollars.  Rooms at the Atlantis Resort on Paradise Island in the Bahamas range from the cheap no frill $300 a night range to the luxury suites that go for $25,000 or more a night.  You can bet that the First Daughters aren’t staying the $300 a night rooms.

Neither the White House or the Atlantis have confirmed the reports of the Obama girls’ spring break trip, people at the resort have been tweeting like crazy about seeing them.  Several people tweeted about seeing them at Club Crush, a nightclub geared for teens and tweens.  One tweet went out saying:

“OBAMA'S DAUGHTERS SMILED AND WAVED AT ME. I WAS IN THE SAME ROOM AS OBAMA'S DAUGHTERS.”

Since no one is officially confirming the trip, there is no way at this point in time to know how much the trip is costing US taxpayers.  Last year, Malia, then 13 spent her spring break in Mexico at a cost of $115,500 to taxpayers.  With the two daughters on this trip and the prices at the Atlantis, I would not be surprised if this year’s spring break extravaganza costs us over $250,000.

As a taxpayer, I find this type of behavior to be extremely offensive and insensitive.  Obama is using the sequester to put our borders in danger by furloughing Border Patrol and Customs agents; he’s putting people’s lives in jeopardy by closing a number of air traffic control towers; and hurting the wallets of many federal employees who will be losing up to 20+ days of pay from furloughs.  Then he turns around and spends possibly a quarter million dollars of taxpayer money for his daughter’s spring break.

Add to that Vice President Joe Biden’s one night stay in Paris that cost us $585,000.

Budget cuts need to start at the top with Obama.  There is no justification for spending hundreds of thousands of dollars for a spring break trip at a time of such financial crisis.  I also believe that they should ground Air Force One and keep Obama in Washington to do his job.  He doesn’t need to travel around the country to just look down on all of us lowly peasants and he doesn’t need to make any more trips overseas.  Once the economy recovers sufficiently, then perhaps the Obamas can take a week’s vacation, but not 4-6 vacations a year.

We also need to bill the Obamas for White House freeloaders like Michelle’s mother who has been living high off the hog in the presidential mansion since the first day they moved in.  Get rid of the $100,000 per year dog walker and the $227,000 a year calligraphers.

Taxpayers forget that the president and all of Congress work for us.  We technically are their bosses, although you’d never know it by the way they operate.  They all believe that we work for them, but if you read the Constitution, it’s the other way around and things won’t change unless we force them to change.

          Soros is the jewish man who as a teenager led the jews to their death chambers.........Soros's father was a Hitler snitch........Koch brothers never put people to death........Soros is a very dangerous man who profitted off tearing companies apart...........John has no facts...........just the talking points of stupid liberal medias.

        • rosemarienoa

          Not only that soros destroyed several eastern European countries & the Bank of England & he sponsors oblamo to make America another socialist country/nanny state!!! He is older than dirt & should be dead soon......I hope!!! He is pure evil just like oblamo!!!

          Just like for all other US presidents. And on Obama's trip to Hawaii, he covered the costs of the vacation house.

        • texan texan

          Martha....facts of tax returns and documentation of expenses are really easy to verify. You guys continue to rant about vacations using bad information and refuse to admit all President take many vacations. Why not focus on more important issues using real facts. How's that impeachment thing going...been a long time. next week?

        • 529_Barb

          Why shouldn't we rant about ovomit's vacations.........it's my money and yours and everybody elses...........Presidents are entitled to vacations but......since he's on our payroll he can damn well pay for them himself and not take all his friends from the hood on our dime.......that goes for the first baboon and her chimps.

          Yeah, I bet the cost to go to Camp David for a vacation is really close to what the obamy's pay for the kids and themselves......

        • fryer01

          HE FINDS CAPE DAVID BORINGGGGGGGGG !!!!!

        • Gouchybear

          But he has skeet shooting at Camp David...and loves skeet shooting, right? Right?? Obammy could find arse if we gave him and flashlight and a mirror on a stick, let alone shoot skeet.

        • rosemarienoa

          Too bad for him!!! He cant shoot either.....he's a pansy!!!

        • Jacqueline Lynn

          But not for Air Force One outward bound, then back to DC on the well publicized "interruption" of the family vacation. Then back to Hawaii and back again to the Mainland so the girls could get ready for Vail. Nor for the Secret Service and staff they require to dress themselves, pick up after them and keep track of their busy busy lives!

        • John

          Please refer to my previous post that shows how much previous Presidents have spent on Air Force One.

        • a marine .

          No he did not pay for his house in Hawaii it was given to him by the people that he has sold this country out too. Darn even CBS(COMMUNIST BROAD CASTING ) HAD IT ON THEIR NEWS. He is guilty of treason period. He is guilty of taking bribes that is a felony and in his case is an act of treason.The majority of real Americans are slow to anger and take action but when we do obamaass and his followers just watch the heck out, we will get justice. That is on the nose , hits the spot and on the mark, come back with a sarcastic comment as too what they mean. Trust me you and your brother and sister followers of the kenyan fuhrer will find out sooner than you think, If you ever get to Va. holler at me I will be glad to give you a class on how to not be a troll butt hole. And yes i am a MARINE, Sgt 1970 to 74,Honorable discharge and I volunteered I was not drafted. I believe in the CONSTITUTION OF THIS NATION,
          so just shut your mouth here and go to an obamaass site and slobber all over your self.

        • John

          I'm talking about the house they rented on their Hawaii vacation trip. You are too blinded by your rage to follow the conversation.

        • a marine .

          Since your so big on facts and a paper trail Show us the receipt that he paid for the rent, he did not pay for it.You darn right I am in a rage this illegal SOB Soils our white house and we pay to send his spawn on vacation, . you damn right I am mad.

        • John

          Just because I can access some information doesn't mean I can access everything. If you are so interested in the receipt, look for it yourself.

          Taxpayers paid for the vacations of all previous presidents too, didn't you know?

Community organizers don't get paid that much. Elevated to messiah status by the media is the only reason his lame books even sold and how he became a millionaire not counting that bogus million dollar peace prize he got. We all know he doesn't know how to write a budget or save money.

        • Gouchybear

          HAHAHA, they GAVE UP their licenses to practice law just hours before they were disbarred for FRAUD. One does not spend four years in law school and $200k in tuition in order to become a lawyer and then just decide they want to give up being a lawyer making $300k a year so they could better themselves and become a community organizer making $12k a year. HELLO, where is the logic in that???
          http://www.wnd.com/2009/08/105998/

          And factcheck.com is a shill just like snopes.com

        • John

          Who are you to decide what people can or can't do? They obviously did not need the money and weren't interested in practicing law anymore. Is there a law that says you have to practice law for X amount of time after you receive your license?

          The article that you linked gives NO proof for any of your statements. They were never disbarred and there were never any accusations of fraud. In fact, the article you posted confirms that what Michelle did was COMPLETELY normal and not out of the ordinary.

          Here are some quotes from your article which go against what you say:

          "Grogan explained, “At the time, the only way to go on inactive status was to do what she did – which was to file a petition in the Illinois Supreme Court.”

          He said attorneys often filed a petition for 770 when they wanted to pursue other careers, retire or begin raising a family.

          “At the time, this happened all the time,” he said. “Our office would have to file what’s known as a consent.”

          Grogan said his office would have immediately alerted the court in a public filing if there had been reason to believe she should face disciplinary action.

          “We filed a consent in Michelle Obama’s case in which we had no objection to her transferring to inactive status,” he said. “In the event that she did go on inactive status and she engaged in any disbarrable offenses, there would be a disciplinary case of public record.”

          “There’s absolutely no indication of any disciplinary proceeding ever lodged against Michelle Obama,” he said.

        • Gouchybear

          No proof?? Little Troll, look at the ARDC record for Michelle. She surrendered her license in a plea bargain to avoid formal charges being filed against her and being disbarred. She is not eligible to practice law ever again, she is on court ordered inactive status. Can you say DISBARRED, or as close to it as one can get.

        • John

          The article that YOU LINKED contradicts you. What's the point in continuing the conversation? Re-read the article that you posted http://www.wnd.com/2009/08/105998/

          It clearly explains everything and says: “There’s absolutely no indication of any disciplinary proceeding ever lodged against Michelle Obama,”

          Again, YOU posted this article. How can you be so stupid as to keep arguing against it? I mean really, I'm at a a loss for words on this one.

        • Gouchybear

          Look at the ARDC record as it is pretty self explanatory....

          Your WND article covers it. Why am I having to tell you what is in the article that you posted? For the 3rd time?

          "The ARDC website explains, “Prior to November 1, 1999, former Supreme Court Rule 770 provided for a proceeding in the Court for any voluntary transfer to inactive status, whether because of some incapacitating condition or solely as a matter of the lawyer’s preference because the lawyer would not be practicing law.”

          Grogan explained, “At the time, the only way to go on inactive status was to do what she did – which was to file a petition in the Illinois Supreme Court.”

          He said attorneys often filed a petition for 770 when they wanted to pursue other careers, retire or begin raising a family.

          “At the time, this happened all the time,” he said. “Our office would have to file what’s known as a consent.”"

        What difference does that make? If that is true, and I read somewhere that they were in danger, at one point, of losing their home due to insolvency, all before running for president and getting financial support from people and concerns he now is supporting through the office of presidency, then why isn't he paying for their vacations instead of us? Side note: do you think you would let your 14 and 12 year old CHILDREN go on a spring vacation without you or their mother in attendance? I sure wouldn't. Most adults don't get a vacation like that, and these youngsters do? At your expense. And the White House is not open to school childeren who have a desire to see it and experience the history of their country with chaperons????? No money for many, just the few.

      • Ted Crawford

        Typical no information Progressive! The Obama's, together didn't make $500,000 a year before he became President and Michelle made $315,000 of that! Obama was a ne're do well, boozing, drug user, prior to being located and hosed off by the Chicago political machine!

    • http://www.facebook.com/sam.wicksjr.5 Sam Wicks Jr

      The cost of these breaks should fall squarely upon Obamy's shoulders alone (not ours). He alone was elected (or got into office by fraud); hence the taxpaying citizens SHOULD NOT have to pay for their dream vacations. Plus the cost of security???? It is clear that the democrapic party is a Party Animal Society. Washington DC needs to be cleaned out of this kind of riffraff! Is this the level that the democrapic party has sunk too? This needs to STOP NOW!

      • Keenan Lee

        Unfortunately it won't stop and the Obamas will keep raking the system until they die. They don't care about the American people because they aren't Americans. They used the system to their benefit and will continue to destroy the nation that they despise. Yet they will live the life of a king and queen at our expense laughing all the way.

        • Phillip_in_TX

          Raking? I believe "raping" the system would be more like it.

    • Remington 870

      Typical of a third world family living off the backs of the peasants. The Obama family resembles King Louie and Marie who cared less about the people, which is very obvious as this nice neo communist family flaunts its royal attitude like a drunk sailor on a drinking binge.

          It would be a good idea to e-mail our duly elected representatives and demand they ground AFI which costs $180,000 an hour to fly and Obama lives in it, even if an event is 50 miles away he flys AFI, demand that they pay the country back for all of the vacations they have charged to the taxpayers. It in short is time to impeach this fraud who only got into office by massive vote fraud in the first place. And, they wonder why he doesn't have a mandate. Its pretty hard having a mandate if you get into office by vote fraud and I believe with all of my heart that is what happened.

    • Pebbles

      That would be fine if the parents were paying for it. This is abuse of the American people in a way never seen before this president took office.

      For vacations, Bush didn't spend over - 1.5 BILLION + on lavish vacations in one year - at the cost of the taxpayers!! The Obama's have vacationed "every" month since the beginning of this year, and currently their 12 & 14 year old girls are at Atlantis in the Bahamas - at the expense of the American taxpayers.

      Nor, did the last VP spend almost 1 MILLION - of taxpayers dollars - on accommodations for visits to England (for one night) and France (for one night) combined.

          Tex Mex -

          Obama only makes 400K + per year as President, so how has he "personally" managed to pay for four vacations (at last count) since the beginning of the year? It must be all those royalties from his bogus books...written by his buddy, BA.

          Although the taxpayers are "extremely" generous towards their elected officials - whether it be Obama, Bush, George Washington or some purple alien from Mars - it is Obama's blatant disregard for the suffering of many taxpayers that are under-employed, un-employed or unable to met their obligations, that I find offensive.

          I'm of mixed race, so this is nothing to do with racial issues! I look at the man's policies to see if they are for the greater benefit of the "majority" of the people and of this country - and this man is a disaster!!

    How many vacations has this family had already this year. When I was working I got one a year. This country is hurting and hurting bad and this family has to have been on 3 or more already and we aren't even to the end of March. Yes, they deserve a vacation but anything more than one 2 week vacation a year (what many people get), should be paid for out their pocket, not ours. That includes any cost of secret service, AirForce One, everything PAID FOR BY THEM!! All his campaigning also TV or live appearances, pay for it himself. Doesn't this arrogant JA know that we are in a world of trouble?? I know he doesn't care. If he did he would have made biden stay home too. None of those guys are broke like the rest of the world.

    • madinillinois

      So far, they've had a vacation every month since the beginning of the year!!

      The White House & Obama have already noted, that they will make the "sequester" truly hurt everyone in this country - other then themselves and personal "b*tt kissers".

    • patriotusa2

      It should be obvious to everyone by now that they are not going to give up their "monthly" vacations, celebrity entertainment parties, nor all the other luxuries they have afforded themselves since entering the White House. The sacrifice and self-denial that both Michele and Obama have preached to others, is not something either one of them ever intended to practice. The failing economy, and all that it entails, will not stop nor curb their spending or taste for extravagance. Those who object will be given the proverbial five fingers to the nose as they continue to do whatever they please.

    • texan texan

      Bush has the record....973 or 35% of his term own vacation. Obama is just hitting 10%. Costs to take bush to wack weeds as much as to watch Obama play golf. Get over it.

The Bush twins loved Sourh America where they were photographed dancing a d drinking at cool clubs. We the Taxpayer paid for as much of that as Obama....in the midst of two unbudgeted wars, building the biggest bureaucracy ever a d giving bunches of money back to rich guys.

      Yes, Bush came in with a surplus but it was already eroding when he first took office. I guess you forgot how we got the surplus.

And that's when and where a lot of the surplus evaporated.

    Well that's just it...you hit the nail, on the head: "If they read the Constitution...." They don't read it nor believe in it. It's one thing for the President's expenses being covered by the US taxpayer, it's another thing for his kids to get a free ride complements of us. Obama certainly makes enough as Pres. to send his kids on vacation with his own wallet coughing up the dough or at least that which pertains to the actual stay. He could reimburse the gov't for airfare that woul dbe appropriate were they to take a commercial airline. I'll even give the credit for flying 1st class...But to not expect them to chip in anything is unacceptable while the rest of us may be wondering where th emoney for our next meal will come from.

    It is obvious to me that "the man" simply does not think like normal everyday people since "he ain't one". He's had everything handed to him on a silver platter and thus is going to hand it on a silver platter while he can - that is until the house comes crumbling down around him. Unfortunately for the rest of us, it won't be until after he leaves office.

    Until concerned citizens like us actually get involved in government, starting with local govt, running for office, helping find decent candidates, getting involved with the local GOP (the basic STATED goals of the GOP are right, it's just the current crop of Professional Politicians who are not), we will almost NEVER have decent people in office. We need to be in government. WE NEED TO BE THE GOVERNMENT. It is our duty as citizens. Most of the lot in there now is no good now, never will be any good, and cannot do us any good. They are there only for the benefit of themselves and their families.

  • Jayne Nielsen

    Obama has the fricken gall to lecture "rich" taxpayers about "contributing their fair share" when he has no qualms about SPENDING "rich taxpayer" money on his family? I hope the lunatics who voted this moron back into office feel more than just a pinch in their pockets. I hope they starve but that will never happen because they have their Messiah to bail their fricken a**es out with EBT cards, welfare, free Obamaphones, and free contraceptives.
    But if this would've been President Bush, OMGosh....the world would be coming to an end! Maxine Waters, Harry Reid, Nancy Piglosi, and the rest of the filthy, corrupt, dirty dozen would've been calling for Bush's head.

    Message from Obama to regular Americans - The Political Elite Are Different.

  • Albert Maslar

    Like all politicians in federal government, they know how to game the system. so the political philosophy of Mark Twain was, "Vote the rascals out." The Maslar political philosophy is more severe: "If they choose, on their own, to run for office, elect them for two terms at a time, and let them spend the first term in jail, because they must've done something."

    Why the hell do we as tax payers (and yes by God I am paying taxes, more this year than ever before in my life and I did not earn any more money than last year) have to pay $20 Million per year for the Obama family to take vacations while we are lectured by the POTUS to tighten our belts and economize while he and his take vacations costing us so much. We are idiots. We voted again for them. Darker skinned Christians voted for skin color, rather than the content of his heart (as MLK Jr. dreamed we would, not knowing his own would not) and Jesus said, "Man looks on the outward appearance but God looks on the heart" and we voted not by the content of the man's heart but by the color of his skin. We, collectively the majority of American voters, are sick. We need to repent. Ask God to forgive us and remember never to do this ever again, if we have another chance at it.
    We need some real, core value conservatives, to run for office. There may well be some out there already in local and states, but not too many in the national spotlight at this time, and maybe that is better so they won't be killed by the media early.

    I read everyone's comments to this story. One person stated that there is a lot of talk, but not many people are doing anything "about it".

    Well, Mid term elections are coming..... All of us need to be like Paul Revere NOW and shout out to everyone we know... "Elections are coming! Get out and vote! - Elections are coming! Get out and vote! - Elections are coming! Get out and vote!" Tell your friends, your enemies.... everyone should vote!. Can you imagine what we AMERICANS could do if ALL of us SHOWED UP at the poles and cast a well thought out, intelligent vote? No matter what, drag yourselves to the poles on election day!

    The only real statement that staying home gives is that you are a cowardly person who is not willing to stand up for what you believe in. All the interesting banter in the world is just noise if no one stands up for what is right, actually putting their beliefs down where they are literally counted. So, please, just like those who have gone before us to "fight the good fight", never give up, never let yourself fall again and our country with you, to anyone who wants to "fundamentally change" her. Too many have died to establish and keep our Constitutional Republic... let's keep it also for our children and their children's children.

    Remember.... Masada, The American War of Independence, the Alamo, the Civil War, Pearl Harbor, D Day, 9-12-01, and many other times when courage was the strongest virtue and NEVER GIVE UP. One more thing, I'd like to quote a great American hero, Todd Beamer, .... "Let's roll!" God bless America!

  • Robert Wayne

    And you can bet the sequester is not stopping Obama from giving millions of dollars of taxpayer money to enemy muslim and communist countries that hate us too. Obama and the rest of the left's whole goal is to steal (they call it tax) all wealthy and middle class Americans into poverty and hand out a few crumbs to the people while keeping it all for themselves. That's the way it was in commie Russia and the way it is in red China. Only the low information, low IQ fools who voted for and support Obama are too stupid to see what's going on.

Those will only cost the tax payers about two million bucks. This isn't envy or jealousy it's called, "bitching."

    They sure don't live like We the People, their parents are welfare slug's who need to take a raft back to Kenya where their father was born. It is time to pass term limits for Congress and Senate who sit on their hands and don't protect them they serve. No retirement after that term, same health care for them while in office and after. Get rid of the real waste, the NEA, the EPA, DHS and IRS police. No government unions whats so ever, work or don't eat. No more welfare to breed, no free cell phones and health care. All illegals to go home and get in line to get here, shoot those who break our border laws. no driver Lic, no bank accounts and no voting since they should require a picture ID that they need for all the others. Just a start obey the Constitution which means throw the little Hitler out and elect a real citizen who obey's the Constitution.

  • John Beam

    The other day, I read an AP story about how taxpayers were footing over $2 million a year for the ex-presidents, and gave the impression that we were spending too much for that. Hell, Obama probably costs us that much in a half-hour. If the American people knew how much he and his royal family were costing the taxpayers, they'd want his head on a pole. British subjects pay MUCH less for actual royals than we do for these miserable posers.

    • NoU4EN

      Wake up. Obama's might be paying for their daughters food and lodging but that's it. The taxpayers are picking up the tab for the Secret Service Agents (each agent's per diem (food, lodging) and salary is approximately $919 per day!) who are accompanying the little girls, the costs associated with transporting the up-armored SUVs by separate jumbo jet, and, unless these girls flew on a commercial flight (fat chance), taxpayers are also burdened with paying for the government furnished aircraft which means WE pay for fuel, pilots, stewards, aircraft parking, baggage handlers, and maintenance. We also pay for the costs associated with the SUVs.

    ·
    How did the daughters get to Nassau?
    If on a government/military plane, how much did it cost for fuel, pilots, stewards, baggage handlers, and airplane maintenance?

    How many “friends” accompanied the two Obama daughters to the Atlantis?

    How did those friends get to the Bahamas? Military aircraft? Private jet? Air Force Two?

    If on a military/federal aircraft, who provided the clearance that is a mandatory requirement for civilians to travel govAir?

    How many up-armored SUV vehicles were transported from the U.S.?

    How did the SUVs get there? Military aircraft uniquely have that airlift capable. How much did that flight cost?

    What is the hourly rate of the up-armored SUVs?

    How many Secret Service Agents are accompanying the two daughters? Last year, there were
    25 for only one daughter.

    Are the Secret Service Agents staying “on property” at Atlantis? The agents’ daily, foreign per diem rate in Nassau is $300 for lodging and an additional $155 for meals and incidental expenses ($455 per day; $2275 for 5 days). If the Atlantis stay was for five days with only 25 agents, the expenses would be $2275 per diem x minimum of 25 agents = $56,875 just for agents’ lodging and meals. The average hourly wage for an SS Agent is $58.00: 25 agents x 40 hours x $58 = $58,000 salaries, providing they didn’t have to work overtime. Therefore, the probable lodging, food, and salary cost of just 25 Secret Service Agents for five nights $114,875.

    Are these the Secret Service Agents who are “unavailable because of sequestration” to monitor the White House tours that were denied to sixth graders and other mere mortal children on spring break?

    How many secret service agents accompanied Malia when she went to NYC to have dinner with her friends – right after Obama signedoff on the sequester?

    How did she get to NYC? Military/government aircraft?
    Did her friends travel with her, and if so, did they have authorization to fly (as required by regulation) in a federal/military aircraft?

    All the other above questions apply.

  • podunk1

    Obama & the progressive predators will spend every dime you, your children, and their children will ever earn or same. The House could stop this and can finitely dictate what can be spent and when. We all know Obama and his officers are traitorist thieves We know the progressive rinos are the same wolves masked as real people.

    The House had four years to act - they haven't - which means that majority is as pathological as the other traitor thieves! Time to dump the rinos & thank the few who try under impossible odds. Nobrainer & Mckernel MUST GO! Embrace the good elephant & NEVER FORGET!

What they fail to mention is the friends that we are paying for along with all the secret service and you name it that go with the little witches where ever they go and if you include the cost of airfare it will run in the millions. That could have paid a lot of people to stay on the job and Odumba doesn't care.

We need to have I.D.'s to vote of course that will never do if you remember the black witch that collected social security among other things with her many identies to the tune of millions of dollars. Obamy is a STOOGE for the demoCRAP party it is run by REID, PELOSI, FEINSTEIN, BIDEN and others that make the decisions for the numb skull. There is not one single news cast where Obamy doesn't have a memory lapse for several seconds when he just can't think on his own.
