Wasting money

Our tax dollars recently financed a $700 million dollar American embassy in Iraq. It was paid for out of the Military Budget.
The US embassy in the Baghdad's Green Zone is the largest embassy in world history:
21 buildings on 104 acres, which is the size of 80 football fields. It's large enough to house 8,000 workers plus posh residences for diplomatic staff and their guests. And the biggest swimming pool in Iraq. And tennis courts. And restaurants serving US food chain delicacies. And a nightclub. And the list goes on and on.

The Obamas' Christmas vacation cost far more than we mere mortals earn in a lifetime. They really feel our pain.
