The most recent raise in salary was approved by Congress and President Bill Clinton in 1999 and went into effect in 2001.”Obtained via a Freedom of Information request, here are some of the Obama presidency’s spending items:Since 2009, a total of $40,000,000 has been spent.This year’s Presidential golf outings to California and Florida, including $3,000,000 in flight expenses.2013′s Africa trip and Honolulu vacations for the Obamas cost $16,000,000- for flight expenses alone.2013′s Ireland trip tab: $8,000,000.Michelle Obama’s 2-day side trip to Dublin cost $250,000, including a $3,500 per-night suite.
