IS THIS TRUE? are taxpayers paying for the President and the First Lady to take separate vacations this weekend? one to Aspen and the other to Florida?


(Let me get this straight…the House and the Senate are on vacation even though sequestration is supposed to hit March 1…and now we are paying for 2 big giant jets and lots of Secret Service so that the President and his wife can have separate vacations? Could they not have gone some place and shared a ride? )

The White House confirms today that President Barack Obama will be vacationing in Florida this weekend. His wife, First Lady Michelle Obama, will be in Colorado. The two daughters will be with Michelle.


From the White House press gaggle aboard Air Force One:


Earnest confirmed that FLOTUS and her daughters are on a “ski trip out West with family and friends”, and won’t be with POTUS in Florida this weekend.


While the rest of his family will be skiing, Obama is expected to be hitting the links with golf pros and buddies in Florida.
