imageThe cost of maintaining our own royal family — the Obamas — is a whopping $1.4 billion with a “B,” as reported by the National Review. That means that Queen Elizabeth and her family’s expenses are a mere 4.3 percent of the Obama clan. Stated differently, the Obamas spend more than 23 times what the British royal family does.

Particularly galling is that with the sequester cuts initiated Mar. 1, the president doesn’t believe he can continue paying the $18,000 per week for the White House tour staff.
