Several local restaurants have gone belly up recently, as Finger Lakes families deal with reduced incomes and higher taxes by staying home. Indeed, we were all scolded by Barry O:
‘If you’re a family trying to cut back, you might skip going out to dinner, or you might put off a vacation,’ he said.
Apparently cutting back doesn't apply to our rulers, however. In in spite of trillion dollar deficits, the O's ares still living high on the taxpayers' hog. While Americans will never find out about the Obamas' current trip to Vail, our British cousins can read all about it in the Daily Mail:
First Lady Michelle Obama and daughters Malia and Sasha are said to be on a ‘private family trip’ to Colorado for Presidents' Day Weekend.
They are staying at the upscale Sebastian Hotel on Vail Mountain, where rooms start at $650 a night and range up to more than $2,400 for multi-bedroom suites.
And Joe Biden, head cheerleader for the high speed rail scam, is escaping the snow in the Florida Keys. No word on whether he took Amtrak:
Meanwhile, Vice President Joe Biden and his wife are spending the holiday weekend in the US in Florida’s Key Largo resort town.
The White House said the Bidens arrived in Key Largo on Thursday night and will remain there until Monday night.
