It isn’t just Obama who regards himself as American Royalty and has no respect for Americans’ hard-earned dollars— others in his Administration feel the same way. “As Leon E. Panetta ends a decades-long Washington career capped by his service as defense secretary, he has said repeatedly that he is ready to get back to his family’s bucolic walnut ranch off the central coast of California. But while serving as CIA director and defense secretary for the past four years, he has been commuting back to Monterey, Calif., nearly every weekend on the taxpayers’ dime. Even though Mr. Panetta acknowledges traveling to California on a near-weekly basis, he has declined to say exactly how many trips he has made and has failed to respond to inquiries asking for copies of receipts of his reimbursements to the federal government for the personal travel… Each flight home and back cost the Pentagon an estimated $32,000.” Not surprisingly, Defense Secretary Panetta’s “repeated arguments about the need to get away from the daily environment and rigors of the job has offended some active-duty servicemen who have endured repeated deployments in Iraq and Afghanistan, although they said so only privately out of fear of reprisal.”
Obama enjoys spending American taxpayers’ money on frivolous luxuries and vacations. He refuses to enforce U.S. immigration laws (which is unconstitutional, since his job is to serve as the head of the executive branch of government). So, what’s Obama’s next move?
At a cost of $1.6 million, he’s going to fly to Las Vegas for 3 hours just so he can give an immigration speech. This should ring a bell– he flew all the way to Norway to accept a “Nobel Peace Prize” (which is laughable, when he’s been launching drone strikes, fighting in Afghanistan, attacking Libya, etc.), and Michelle Obama insists on wasting hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars by taking separate vacations. It turns out that Obama and his family cost American taxpayers $1.4 billion per year– that’s 20 times more expensive than the British Royal Family. It’s obvious that Obama regards himself as American Royalty, and has no respect for Americans’ hard-earned dollars.
Obama’s “Cash for Clunkers” program had 2 purposes:
1. Help the U.S. economy
2. Help the environment
Well, we already know that Obama’s “Cash for Clunkers” program was an administrative fiasco and wasted $3 billion of American taxpayer dollars. So, it certainly didn’t help the U.S. economy.
Now, we know that “Cash for Clunkers” actually HARMED the environment! By focusing on car shredding instead of car recycling, the “Cash for Clunkers” program “produced tons of unnecessary waste while doing little to curb greenhouse gas emissions.”
Obama’s “Cash for Clunkers” program impressively spent $3 billion to harm the environment. Shouldn’t there be an investigation?
