After eight years in the White House, the first family has spent over $85 million dollars on travel and vacations according to the watchdog organization, Judicial Watch.
The group has tracked the travel expenses of presidents for years, and with the Obama’s expected lavish annual Christmas trip to Hawaii possibly costing more than $5 Million dollars the expenses are still growing.
Bills obtained by Judicial Watch through the freedom of information act show that secret service expenses alone could cost upwards of $1.2 million dollars.
The Obama family’s 2015 Hawaiian vacation cost taxpayers $4.8 million, according to the group.
Obama’s vacations have cost US citizens more than $10 million dollars each year.
