Letter: President’s fundraising trip much too costly for taxpayers

Last week the President flew to Chicago to give two speeches to Democratic organizations for fundraising purposes. Do any Americans wonder who is paying for these “fun” trips?

I would guess the trip with all the trimmings will cost over $1 million. That is just a guess, but it should be in the ballpark.

Now who will guess if the Democratic Party is picking up the check? I am positive that they are not.

So that means the American taxpayer is paying for the fundraising trip for the Democrats. This “fun” trip is not a function of the President but another gimme for the Democrats.

Should they not be footing the bill instead of the taxpayers???? My answer is “you are durn right they should.”

So when the President should be considering spending less, why do we have to pay for a nothing trip?
