Obama charges American taxpayers $1.6 million so he can fly to Las Vegas for 3 hours

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.

Business goes from bad to worse. And the result? More jobs lost.

Many news stories are emerging about layoffs and firings occurring immediately after Obama won re-election: Among other news stories, one Las Vegas employer fired 22 employees because as a business “at the end of the day, I need to survive” and Boeing has now announced massive layoffs in its defense division.

Obama’s thoughtless comments harm Nevada’s economy

Even Harry Reid is mad at Obama for criticizing trips to Las Vegas, which caused many companies to cancel their plans to visit: “The President needs to lay off Las Vegas and stop making it the poster child for where people shouldn’t be spending their money.” Nice one, Obama: Tourism happens to be the #1 economic stimulus for Southern Nevada.
