Obamas Buy 8.1 Million Dollar Home
Former President Barack Obama has purchased a permanent residence in the nation’s capital, and many cannot help but notice the hypocrisy.
The 8,200-square-foot mansion comes with a whopping price tag of $8.1 million dollars.
That would be 8,200-square-feet and over eight million dollars dedicated to the living needs of a single 4-member family.
Only nine years ago, candidate Barack Obama was promoting the glories of redistribution of the wealth. He said,
“I think when you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody.”
Apparently, that thought process is not applicable when the “wealth” involved belongs to the politician.
When it’s the tax-payers’ money that is on the table, there is no end to the charity that the United States provides, but when it is Barack Obama’s own money at stake, it seems that spreading the wealth around is no longer an issue.
How many homeless veterans could Obama have provided homes to if he had merely bought a modest home and donated the rest of the money? How much health care could he provide to underprivileged families? How many school lunches could this money have paid for?
Obama, along with his fellow Democrats, have spent years perfecting the class-warfare message that it’s not fair that the rich have so much when there are so many Americans living in poverty.
As self-described socialist Bernie Sanders put it, “How many yachts do billionaires need? How many cars do they need? Give us a break. You can’t have it all.”
To be clear, there is absolutely nothing wrong with a person becoming successful and purchasing an 8,200-square-foot mansion in the nation’s capital.
In America, we celebrate success, and we encourage everyone to work hard and earn enough money that they can live a very comfortable lifestyle.
The problem occurs when Leftist politicians, such as Barack Obama, berate the rich and successful in the nation, and demand that others spread their wealth around, when they themselves do nothing of the sort.
When it comes to the Democrats, it seems that “do what I say and not what I do” is a rule that is strictly adhered to.
