Patricia Caba: Taxpayers’ birthday to Michelle Obama

January 13, 2014 

Why on earth didn’t Michelle Obama fly home from Hawaii with her husband and children last week? It will cost about $800,000 to send a plane – Air Force One or Two – to Hawaii to pick her and her entourage up and fly them home in time for her 50th birthday party. Another added expense for the taxpayers.
