How was your last 17-day vacation? Or maybe, when was your last 17-day vacation? Or how about, have you ever had a 17-day vacation?
If your answer to the last question is “No,” then you need to aspire to becoming the President of the United States. Yep, President Obama just came back from a 17-day vacation with his family in Hawaii. It’s difficult to decide whether this is more exasperating because most Americans are struggling to parcel out their incomes to satisfy living expense obligations or that Obama is so arrogant that he doesn’t care about the negative perception of a bureaucrat imposing his tax and spend will on the “little people” while living the high life in paradise. What a schmuck (yes, I said it)!
According to U.S.A. Today, here’s the cost of a 17-day Hawaiian vacation for a family of four (just the necessities--not the golfing, sightseeing, etc.):
$596 per day for food and lodging (x 17 = $10,132)
$3000 for round trip airfare
$900 for a rental car
