This article deals with government because it talks about national debt. National debt is a big part of a government and typically a president wants the national debt to be low. This article talks about Obama, the president and very important figure of the government, going on an expensive vacation to Hawaii and increasing the national debt by another $4 million.

It seems completely unfair that the president can go on lavish vacations with our hard earned money. Also how can we when the US is in so much debt?
Morgan Poe's curator insight, September 7, 2015 7:53 PM

The $400 million dollars Obama spent on his vacation home in Hawaii is nearly 100 time more than the average annual salary of the american worker.Travel costs alone for the president and his entourage via Air Force One in addition to a United States Air Force C-17 cargo aircraft to transport the presidential limos, helicopters and other support equipment, amounts to a whopping $3,629,622. Housing for security costs an estimated $151,200, and hotel rooms for the president’s 24-strong staff a further $72,216. Based on these figures the total cost to the federal US taxpayer is a staggering $3,853,038. If you add in local taxpayer cost, the total public expense is $4,113,038. I feel that this article is bias toward republicans. I also feel that taxpayer money should not be wasted on the the vacation house of one man.
