ObamaChoppers to cost $20 billion
May 10, 2014 - By John Seiler
You would think America didn’t have any economic troubles, and the government could waste whatever money it wanted to on anything.
President Obama’s has ordered a fleet of 23 presidential helicopters — ObamaChoppers — that will cost taxpayers an incredible $20 billion. That’s $20,000,000,000.00.
Although the program won’t deliver the ObamaChoppers until 2020 — typical military-industrial complex delays — they’re named after the president because he ordered them. It also was a no-bid contract.
How many of the poor people the president is always taking about could be given food stamps, or Section 8 housing, for that amount? How many schools could be built?
And why did he order 23 ObamaChoppers? That more than for a scene in “Apocalypse Now — Part Deux.”
Remember this the next time you look at your paycheck and half your money — which you earned with your hard labor — is gone.
