Not Every Family is Cutting Back on Vacations


Thanks to South of 5 and 20 for a reminder of what President Obama told us about balancing our budgets and living within our means.

‘If you’re a family trying to cut back, you might skip going out to dinner, or you might put off a vacation,’ he said.

Well, you may be cutting back, but the Obamas and the Bidens are doing no such thing.

Mrs. Obama and the girls are in Vail, CO for a ski vacation.

First Lady Michelle Obama and daughters Malia and Sasha are said to be on a ‘private family trip’ to Colorado for Presidents’ Day Weekend.

They are staying at the upscale Sebastian Hotel on Vail Mountain, where rooms start at $650 a night and range up to more than $2,400 for multi-bedroom suites.

The Bidens decided to take a holiday in the warm Florida Keys.

Meanwhile, Vice President Joe Biden and his wife are spending the holiday weekend in the US in Florida’s Key Largo resort town.

The White House said the Bidens arrived in Key Largo on Thursday night and will remain there until Monday night.

I wonder what these trips are costing us. Cutting back is only for us little people.
