RIGHTMARCH: Tell Congress NO MORE EXTRAVAGANT OBAMA VACATIONS!

YES, I want to help DEMAND that Congress tell Obama to STOP wasting MILLIONS of dollars taking taxpayer-funded trips, when he won't even open the White House for school kids' tours!

YES, I want to help DEMAND that Congress tell Obama to STOP wasting MILLIONS of dollars taking taxpayer-funded trips, "when he won't even open the White House for tours by average Americans without jumping through months-long 'hoops'!

Over and over again, Barack Obama takes his family on extravagant vacations -- and calls them "official trips" so they can make TAXPAYERS foot the bill! We need to mobilize folks to take action right away to force Congress to DEMAND that the Obamas stop taking these taxpayer-funded trips, when they won't even open the White House for daily public tours like they used to, due to so-called "budget constraints"... So we've set up an easy way for you to make your voice heard LOUD AND CLEAR -- please sign your name below and send a free message to your U.S. Representative and Senators AT ONCE, urging that they DEMAND Obama refrain from any further taxpayer-funded vacations until the White House can be re-opened for regular daily public tours -- NOW!

When we are asked to cut back just to pay for basic necessities why are our taxpayer dollars used to excessive amounts for large groups of people to join the First Family on mulitple lavish vacations.

It's time that this government "of the people" start living like "we the people" are forced to do. If it's good enough for us then you don't deserve any better.

I think we need to specify how many vacations a president can take. I had to work for a company for 5 years before I could take 3 weeks' vacation; 1 year for 2 weeks. Even if I logged on during my vacation to get emergency work done.

Exactly who does he think he is that enables he and his family to take such extravagant vacations? As far as I am concerned he isn't even a legal citizen so therefore he isn't really my president!!!!!!!

With the financial burden this country is in I would like to think the President would trim back expenses as most every taxpayer has had to do to make ends meet. Please put an end to this waste.

I'd like to know what sort of vacations they took before it was funded by the tax payers. I'm not opposed to the Obama family having vacations, but it seems over the top at this time. Maybe they would be transparent as to their previous vacations, but I rather doubt it.
