Wasteful Spending

Dear?Editor,

Having no regard for taxpayer dollars, President Obama flew back from Hawaii for a couple of days to deal with the “fiscal cliff”, then took Air Force One back to Hawaii to complete his vacation.

The cost of Air Force One is about $1.5 million dollars each way! Obama didn’t have to come back for the “cliff” haggling, but did so for a “photo op.” That makes it a $3 million photo op, folks! And to add insult even further, he then goes back on his multi-million dollar vacation and signs the bill with a Robo-pen!

For a country so deep in debt, I don’t think he should frivously be throwing away $3 million of money we don’t have. And WE are supposed to make sure our tires are properly inflated.
