IF MICHELE OBAMA'S SPANISH trip was a "private trip", how much did it cost us Taxpayers?
Nobody will ever know. They have already traveled more than any other President for non-government business. I am sure when he is out of office in two years, the actual numbers will come out.
If it was a private trip, more than likely the president paid for it himself. They don't get to use tax dollars for everything. Remember he does have a salary and still gets money from his books.
Every time one of the "first family" leaves the white house it costs all taxpayers money.
