Obama should forgo expensive vacation

Merry Christmas. President Obama is going to Hawaii for 20 days. This vacation will cost U.S. taxpayers an estimated $4 million. Even with the fiscal cliff problem, Obama feels he is entitled. Why? He is a 2 percenter.

The president should not spend the $4 million on his vacation for another reason. There are people affected by Hurricane Sandy who still do not have power or a place to live.

The president should practice what he preaches – fairness. He should direct the government to forward $4 million to the people in New York who have serious problems and forgo his trip. He is not a king. He is the president and he should act like one.
