Should recreational spending by government officials of taxpayers' money be stopped?
For example, an upcoming 9th Circuit Court vacation in a Maui resort, to include snorkeling and sailing.
Or vacation expenses by Michelle Obama, who is only the wife of a government official.
Have many employers give working middle class people not only vacation time from their jobs, but also PAY for their vacation expenses? I don't know of any.
Nor should the employers of government officials [taxpayers] be required to pay for their vacations.
Obama gets 400G's a year president's pay. If that's not enough to allow him to fund his own vacations, I know most of the rest of us would have no problem budgeting that much money.
Government officials should get designated vacation time. And what they do with it should be paid for with their own money.
